Global Day of Jewish Learning
Sunday, November 17, 2019
9:45 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Learn with Dr. Sarah Wolf, assistant professor of Talmud and Rabbinics, JTS, at the Global Day of Jewish Learning.
334 Amsterdam Avenue at 76th Street
New York City
Dr. Wolf will teach from 2:50 p.m. – 3:40 p.m.
We often think of Judaism as encouraging a culture of questioning, but are there some questions that we consider to be too problematic? Starting with several Talmudic stories about questions, we will explore how we perceive and respond to difficult questions in our own communities around big issues.
Join with 500 communities in over 40 countries for a day of Torah study. In addition to the teaching sessions, there will be robust children’s programming, run by Ramah.
