May 10, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
FROM THE OUTSIDE IN: HOW A HISTORY OF MARGINALIZATION AFFECTS JEWISH RESPONSES TO MARGINAL POPULATIONS TODAY WITH RABBI DANIEL NEVINS
Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”
May 10, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET
This session is generously sponsored by Drs. Bonnie and Isaac Pollak in honor of our children and grandchildren.
In the book of Numbers, the gentile prophet Balaam says that the people Israel are “a nation that dwells apart.” This has been both a blessing and a curse. How has the experience of marginalization defined Jewish identity? Join Rabbi Daniel Nevins to look at classical Jewish texts and then consider their implications for the role of Judaism in addressing marginalization in contemporary contexts.
Rabbi Daniel Nevins is the Pearl Resnick Dean of The Rabbinical School and the Division of Religious Leadership and senior lecturer of professional and pastoral skills.
