    Shabbat, Mar 30th 5:30p to 7:30p
    “In Jews and Words, my father and I wrote that ‘Ours is not a bloodline but a text line’. My father has left us, but his texts run in my veins. In this talk I will try to speak for him, for myself, and for our proposed way of looking at Jewish continuity and its all-human legacy."

    Responsa for the 21st Century: Early Morning Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky
    Tuesday, Apr 9th 8:15a to 9:00a
    The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts —mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional — to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics.
