-- A Paradoxical Powerhouse: The Rise of Haredi Feminism -- Thursday, September 21st, 1:00 pm, on Zoom

This talk by Dr. Tanya Zion-Waldoks examines the emergence of a revolutionary and novel feminist movement within Israel’s Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) community; a highly conservative, illiberal, and relatively insular religious community committed to upholding ancient traditions and strict gender roles. In recent decades, haredi society in Israel has been shaped by profound political, economic, and social changes. Gender relations are a central site of contention and transformation, affecting haredi society and its interactions with Israel writ large. Feminist haredi activists, invested in championing women's rights while remaining within a collectivist conformist society and conservative tradition, push for the reimagination of individual lives, communal structures, and Israeli society.

-- Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks z'l: A Spiritual Biography -- 4 Wednesdays, October 11-November 1, 1:00-2:30 pm, online

In this ground-breaking course, Rabbi Johnny Solomon, a dedicated student of Rabbi Lord Sacks z’l, will share a range of teachings of Rabbi Sacks on themes relating to identity, self-esteem, failure, and joy. While doing so, we will gain a knowledge and understanding of the great man who was the Chief Rabbi of England but whose teachings impacted contemporary Jews from around the world.
