Free & Open to the Community
Embark on a year-long intellectual journey with the Rabbi Sacks Tidewater Community Book Club, an initiative supported by the Konikoff Center for Learning of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.
In response to recent challenges faced by the Jewish community, this series seeks to deepen our understanding of Jewish values and unite disparate elements through the exploration of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’ profound teachings.
The events, hosted every two months at various synagogues across Tidewater, will feature guided discussions and provide an opportunity for fellowship. The first will be held with us at Congregation Beth El in Norfolk and will focus on Rabbi Sacks’ “Future Tense: Jews, Judaism and Israel in the 21st Century,” examining the origins of antisemitism, the role of Judaism in the contemporary world, and the future of the Jewish people.
Whether reading in advance or joining the discussions, participants are encouraged to deepen their connection with “the people of the book.”
