Summer Yom Iyyun 2018
Who in our communities really deserves our respect and how should we show it? How did our sages deal with the discrepancy between who should lead and who doeslead? The Torah tells us that we have to stand before an elder, but gives no guidance as to who this category includes. Our rabbis in the Talmud Yerushalmi discuss this question with regard to a live issue of their times: what they saw as corrupt synagogue leadership. Featured at our 2018 Summer Yom Iyyun.
