Tuesday Nights with Rabbi Finley

Beginning June 5
(and every Tuesday in June)

First Topic: Current Events - Israel

Discussion / Study

Café 6PM -  Appetizers / Drinks

Study 7PM / Discussion

We had two recent programming events, that people really enjoyed: My talk on the First Arab Israeli War of 1948, and my Shavu’ot Talmud study. Each group asked for more.

At the Talmud study, we touched upon a difficult cultural issue (gender and hierarchy), and some participants suggested that such discussions be held with a planned focus. 

Done and Done!

Current Events - June 5

Discussion of hot topics that need to be cooled down, presented to inform, not to persuade.

Book Review - June 12

My favorite books and/or authors that I think would be of interest, old or new. Suggestions gladly accepted.

Text Study - June 19

Texts from the Bible to Zohar, Talmud to Hasidic masters – presented with original Hebrew or Aramaic with translations provided. We will bring to life the inner wonders of Jewish texts.

Thoughtful, Not Ideological - June 26

The tough discussions on Race, Class, Gender, etc., where thoughtful people want to discuss an issue with people of different opinions. I would invite guest speakers with expertise to help with the discussion on given issues.

Other topics for a Tuesday night will gladly be considered.

Our guides of “political spirituality” would be in force: facts, values, premises, policies – no anger, criticizing, complaining, or condemning (no accusing, blaming, labeling, comparing unkindly, etc.) All relevant sides to an issue will be countenanced.

Suggestions for specific books, texts, discussion topics and guest presenters are gladly accepted.
