Sunday Morning Programs: See it My Way

Sunday, Dec 12th 9:00a to 11:30aLiz Myska is a local attorney specializing in elder law, and also an activist for Visually Impaired People (VIPs). Liz herself is a VIP. Born fully sighted, she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) some years back and is now legally blind. Liz will talk about her initiatives aimed at getting sighted people and VIPs working together to improve everyone’s lives. We’ll open up the Zoom at 9:00 for schmoozing and discussion. If there are a lot of people joining at 9:00, we’ll divide into breakout rooms with a prompt, so we can all get to know someone new. If there are just a few early birds, it will be more freeform. Then at 9:30 we’ll have the presentation and a Q&A session to follow.

Project Zug: Theology and Ethics after the Holocaust

Monday, Dec 13th 7:30p to 8:30pThe Holocaust was more than the greatest catastrophe in Jewish history. It is a watershed in human civilization. The event challenges the credibility of religions, in particular Judaism and Christianity, confronts the fundamental assumptions and self-understanding of modern civilization, and demands revisions in ethical norms and behaviors. One of the world's leading Holocaust theologians, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, in decades of teaching and writing, has taken up the challenges of this conversation head-on. As he concludes, the Holocaust is far too big an event to assimilate into any prior version of Jewish theology. It requires new answers and new paradigms. In this course, we will explore Greenberg's revolutionary framework of covenant and what he sees as the core vision of Judaism in the modern world in order to begin thinking about these huge, terrifying, and challenging themes.
