Penn Lecture: The Jewish Family Faces the Future: Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb
Wednesday October 30, 2019
The French poet Paul Valery once wrote, “The future, like everything else, is no longer what it used to be.” How will the Jewish family, the vital core of Jewish existence throughout our history, be affected with a future so unpredictable? Rabbi Weinreb will address this question from the perspectives of a psychologist, a synagogue rabbi, and a communal leader. He will discuss some of the struggles that Jewish families across the ideological spectrum are now facing, and will identify trends which are already apparent and which portend even greater struggles in the future. Rabbi Weinreb will conclude, with practical advice and words of hope.
Rabbi Dr. Weinreb is an ordained rabbi, a clinical psychologist, and the Executive Vice President Emeritus of the Orthodox Union. Rabbi Weinreb lectures extensively visiting communities and congregations across North America, Europe and Israel. He is the editor-in-chief of the new Koren Talmud Bavli, and has authored a commentary on the book of Psalms, called The Rohr Family Edition of Tehilim.
