Limmud Shabbat: Prayer and Learning
Friday, November 15, 2019
Gun Violence and Jewish Values
This Shabbat examine the issue of Gun Violence. Beyond a debate of U.S. constitutional interpretation, what does Jewish tradition teach us about violence and our Jewish values? Even before the time of guns, our Scriptures and Sages wrestled with what rights a society might offer and what restrictions it might impose to prevent unspeakable violence, the kind our contemporary culture confronts each day in the news. Explore what Jewish wisdom and texts can be brought to this modern moral plague of our own time.
Limmud (Learning) Shabbat services focus half of our time on studying together. With Rabbi Kamrass, we explore a topic or theme that enhances Shabbat through learning, enrichment, and timeless Jewish values. If Shabbat is the ideal time for learning (limmud), our Limmud Shabbat service provides the ideal combination of community, prayer and study to deepen the Shabbat celebration.
