Schedule of the Evening

 

6:00 - 6:45 Dinner for Hadar Alumni
 
Lecture with Rabbi Jason Rubenstein: 
If Slavery is Not Wrong, then Nothing is Wrong: The Torah and the Struggle Against Slavery Past, Present, and Future
 
How does the Torah orient us to freedom and enslavement of Jews, and of others? What strategies can bridge the Exodus's assault on slavery with much of the tradition's acceptance of slavery as a social institution? We'll look closely at Jewish reflections on freedom and enslavement in both classical sources and more recent American history, with the goal of moving beyond the either-or of particularism/universalism to a stance that integrates universal human dignity with distinctive historical experience.
 
Singing with Joey Weisenberg 
Join us in learning original songs from Joey Weisenberg, award winning author of the Torah of Music. Bring some new music to your Pesah seder!
