Jewish Values: An Anchor to Goodness

April 8 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

How can we use core Jewish values to orient us around a life of goodness and betterment, of ourselves and the world we live in? In this class we will explore some lesser known Jewish values, examine their origins and the ways in which we can integrate them into our daily lives, turning to them as lodestars along the journey of a life. We will explore the following values:

Sameach be’chelko: finding happiness in what is

Rodef Shalom: pursuing peace in all areas of your life

Keter Shem Tov: cultivating a legacy of goodness

Ve’ahavta le’reacha kamocha: loving an other as you love yourself

Shevirah: acknowledging and holding what is broken and imperfect

Elu V’Elu: embracing a multiplicity of truths

Lech Lecha: Taking steps forward on your journey

Tzedek tzedek tirdof: chasing after justice

Each class session will include Jewish text study, secular sources of wisdom, personal reflection and group discussion. All are welcome. Rebecca Minkus-Lieberman
