Yaffe Scholars Zoom Series: Tools for Transformation
Explore some of the most fundamental and timely Jewish values: connecting with prayer, loving your neighbor, pursuing righteousness, and more with the goal of transforming these oft quoted mitzvot into major sources of inspiration and daily practice in your Jewish life in this Zoom series.
Loving the Neighbor You Hate, Dasee Berkowitz, Jewish author and Educator at Ayeka
We are commanded to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) but what about when that neighbor drives you crazy? Just in time for Thanksgiving, we will explore texts and tools to help us move from the theoretical to the practical when it’s most challenging to love others.
