Tuesday, May 31 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Diverse Access (hybrid), 9001 Towne Centre Drive
San Diego, CA 92122 United States
Free

A powerful love story with a purpose: to challenge Jewish customs concerning women, marriage, and equality. The award-winning author of Rashi's Daughters, Maggie Anton, has written a wholly transformative novel that takes characters inspired by Chaim Potok and ages them into young adults in Brooklyn in the 1950s, a time of Elvis and Marilyn, communist scares and polio vaccines, Jewish migration and American integration. When Hannah Eisin, a successful journalist, interviews Rabbi Nathan Mandel, a controversial Talmud professor, she persuades him…

Virtual Walking Tour: Jewish Budapest

Wednesday, June 1 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Zoom CA United States
Free

In a city that has seen extremes of both ruin and redevelopment in the last 100 years, Budapest’s Jewish Quarter is a perfect depiction of past and present cohabiting and is a must-see for its unique contrasts of old and new–and sometimes, old as new. The Jewish Quarter is a network of lively, connecting streets that sit in amongst the central VII district, a neighborhood scattered with historical relics, as well as all manner of trendy drinking holes buried within…

The great Mexican chef Enrique Olvera says that Mexico is rich with poverty. When people have nothing to eat, they have to eat nothing and everything; they have to make something strange taste wonderful. Hasidut is a theology of poverty; a theology of suffering, of deprivation. Hasidut is a theology that sees miracles in the dirt; God – in a falling shack; redemption in the heart of despair, joy in the darkness of exile. In this sense, Hasidut shares similar…

Moral Philosophy, Spiritual Psychology and A Crisis of Consciousness

Wednesday, June 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Zoom CA United States
Free

Our time is defined by a crisis of consciousness and broken spiritual connection. Driven by a materialist, zero-sum approach to everything, we seek answers in ego, money, power and consumption. It’s an addiction that’s wreaking havoc on the planet—and ultimately leaves us empty. It is this terrain that we tread with spiritual psychologist, historian, philosopher, wisdom counselor and the world’s only rabbi with a black belt in jiu-jitsu, Rabbi Mordecai Finley, Ph.D.  In our one hour session, we will learn about…

1177 BC Revisited: Updating the Late Bronze Age Collapse and the Rise of Israel

Sunday, June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Zoom CA United States
Free

In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the “Sea Peoples” invaded Egypt. The pharaoh’s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites,…

God may have taken the Jews out of Egypt, but how to take Egypt out of the Jews? The Book of Numbers recounts the difficulties of what can only be termed the adolescence of the Israelite people, and like everyone’s teenage years, it is not a pretty picture. What skills, what sustaining ideas, what resiliences are put into play when the Israelites, having escaped Egypt, must face both the effects of enslavement on their national character, and the threats of growing up…

Mirror Image A Screening & Discussion

Wednesday, June 15 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Zoom CA United States

Jewish Israeli grandparents are challenged by their grandchild to compose an agreed-upon version of the untold story of a large mirror, taken from an Arab village after the 1948 war. An intimate discussion that reflects on how history is written, contested and negotiated. With its accented aesthetic and what can be seen as a surprising choice of topic, Mirror Image teaches us that these counter-spaces can also be occupied by “accented filmmakers” who were born and raised in Israel. It…

The 1960s saw a quantum leap in the status of Jews in American life, mediated in large part by the treatment of Jewish celebrities by Jews and gentiles alike. As comedian Lenny Bruce put it, it was suddenly “in” to be Jewish. Celebrities like Lenny Bruce, Sandy Koufax, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand and their contemporaries were significantly more transformative than their predecessors. What was it about the 60s that allowed this to happen?  Dr. David E. Kaufman is a scholar and…
