Join us for our latest Jewish Learning Series with Rabbi Menachem Creditor, UJA's Pearl and Ira Meyer scholar-in-residence. We’ll study selections of the Jewish text Pirkei Avot (Ethics of Our Ancestors) as the foundation for deeper conversations about self-refinement and character improvement, generational transmission of tradition, authentic religious authority, humility, and fair judgment.
You’ll also hear about UJA’s critical work helping New Yorkers get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.
No prior Judaic study participation, experience, or knowledge is required.
This program is intended for donors who make an individual or family gift of $500 or more to UJA-Federation’s 2022 Annual Campaign.
