Five Thursday mornings with Rabbi Meir
Continues Thursday, January 31, 11am
Whether we're asking life's biggest questions (why are we here, what is our purpose, the horror of evil, our mortal essence, Jewish people and place) or remembering fondly our university studies of history's most important thinkers, join Rabbi Meir in our study of Martin Buber and Emanuel Levinas. This journey into the lives and minds of two of our greatest 20th Century, Jewish thinkers will be enriching and uplifting.
Our study of Buber's, The Way of Man and I & Thou have been wonderful, and next Thursday, January 31, we will focus on Buber's thoughts on Zionism. We will reflect on two essays, both of which are available on-line.
Martin Buber, Letter from Martin Buber to Mahatma Gandhi, http://www.

Martin Buber, Zionism and Other National Concepts
Starting the following week, Thursday Feb. 7, we will begin our study of Emanuel Levinas, in his Nine Talmudic Readings.
Blessings to all,
