Freedom as Responsibility: A Discussion of Pirkei Avot 6:2
Tue, May 26 at 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
On Shavuot we celebrate the receiving of the Torah as the culmination of the Exodus from Egypt. Pirkei Avot 6:2 offers us an explanation of this connection by arguing that real freedom comes from a life of commitment to Torah.
Join Ansche Chesed member Rabbi Bill Plevan to explore how this conception of freedom as responsibility match our conception of freedom in the individual or the political sphere? We will consider this conception of freedom in both Jewish thought and Western political philosophy.
