Rabbis have often voiced their personal observations on life, but for whatever the reason and all too often, those comments have been overlooked…until now. In this course, based upon the Hebrew text, MiDor Dor (From Generation to Generation), we will read and discuss 100 intriguing and often, shocking rabbinic comments on numerous topics including: Christianity, Anti-Semitism, Chassidim, Modernity, Reform Judaism, Synagogue Boards, Zionism, and many more! Warning:  seat belts are required to be worn for every session!


“Chutzpah and Wisdom With a Twist” with Rabbi Norman Lipson, Emeritus

Rabbinic interpretations of Torah and everyday experiences are as wide-ranging as they are incisive.  Optimally, they show new shadings and color tones hidden within our holy texts, but also within our everyday experiences as well. In this course, translated from the Hebrew works: Ma’asei HaGedolim/Stories of the Greats and Meiotzreinu HaYashan/From Our Old Treasury, collated by  B. Yeushzon, we will enjoy a challenging and exciting journey through the world of interpretation, commentary and of life itself. As always, we will discuss and add our own commentaries. It will be great way to spend a summer day!
