RESPONSA FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

EARLY MORNING STUDY WITH RABBI KALMANOFSKY The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts – mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional – to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics. Second TUE of the month at 8:15AM

Talmud Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky

The Secret Mysticism of the Talmud Generally, Talmud is the least esoteric sort of Jewish wisdom. The Sages' care mostly about often very mundane law, like property disputes and kashrut. But Talmud also has its own occult lore. This year in Wednesday night Talmud we will study the second chapter of Tractate Hagigah, which you can purchase on-line, or through our dear friends at West Side Judaica. We'll read stories of mystical rabbis, and we will supplement the Talmud's material…

Lost & Found Exhibit at the Center for Jewish History

Join an Ansche Chesed group, led by member David Roskies, whose family photos were found in creating this exhibit.

The Lost & Found exhibit at the Center for Jewish History will tell the remarkable story of a family photo album that was owned and assembled in the years leading up to World War II by Anna Warshawska, who was deported in 1943 from the Kovno Ghetto together with most of her family. Prior to her deportation, Anna, more intimately known as Annushka, smuggled the album out of the city’s wartime Jewish ghetto, entrusting it to a non-Jewish Lithuanian family for safekeeping. The album was rediscovered in 2013 and, after some sleuthing and fortuitous discoveries, reunited with the descendants of Warshawska’s family.

Meet at the Center: 15 West 16th St. New York by 11am.
