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…

Why is Israel the New Hollywood: Moshe Zonder on Fauda

The trend, that began with BeTipul (In Treatment) and Prisoners of War (Homeland), and was followed by HaTufim and Srugim, also gave us Fauda. Come join the Ansche Chesed community as we hear Moshe Zonder, Head Writer of Fauda, as he shares with us the background of the show, and why he thinks Israeli television is the new trend in must-see TV.
