Shabbat Services

Saturday, June 25, 2022 26 Sivan 5782

9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This Shabbat, join Rabbi Ira Stone after services and Kiddush lunch at 1:15pm to learn about Emmanuel Levinas’ approach to the Talmud and engage in text study together. Rabbi Stone served as Congregation Beth Shalom’s first rabbi and is currently the director of the Center For Contemporary Mussar. The Talmud is the central document of Rabbinic Judaism, yet remains a closed text to the vast majority of Jews. The traditional modes of Talmud study do not bring questions or methodologies that would resonate with contemporary Jews. However, the French/Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas pioneered an approach to Talmud that could serve the purpose of rendering a text that often appears to be consigned to a frozen historical moment into a meaningful guide for contemporary religion. No registration needed to join for services, lunch, or the learning. 


As of April 9th, 2022, registration is no longer required for Shabbat services.
