What does it mean to be a good person and a good Jew in 2015? How can we educate ourselves and our community in an attempt to enact that vision?
We will explore answers to these questions from Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira, Rebbe of Piaseczno and the Warsaw Ghetto and author of several works including Derech Hamelech, Chovat Hatalmidim, and Aish Kodesh.
Join us as we learn from this remarkable spiritual leader and ask how his legacy might guide us today.
Featuring: Rabbi Dr. Nehemia Polen and Dr. Erin Leib Smokler
Moderated by Dr. Devora Steinmetz
