Event description

Description

After worship and a complimentary meal, Rabbi Menachem Creditor will address the congregation around the relationships between Proximity and Power and between Intimacy and Idolatry.

Much of Jewish history has pivoted upon the question of power and powerlessness. Come explore ways in which the narrative of the Golden Calf might provide a framework for reflecting upon mindful Jewish ways of being of service to others. Reflect upon how the Jewish navigation between (or combining) power and powerlessness can deeply influence Jewish communal thinking and conduct in our sacred work to build a world of love.

Rabbi Menachem Creditor serves as the Pearl and Ira Meyer Scholar in Residence at UJA-Federation New York, where his role is amplifying Jewish learning, leadership and values within the UJA-Federation community of supporters, staff, and partners. In 2013, he was named by Newsweek as one of the fifty most influential rabbis in America and has been involved in the leadership of Rabbis Against Gun Violence, American Jewish World Service, AIPAC and the One America Movement, an organization dedicated to bringing together Americans of different faiths and opinions. Among his 18 books and six albums of original Jewish music are “And Yet We Love: Poems,” “Holding Fast: Jewish Respond to American Gun Violence" and “Olam Chesed Yibaneh/A World of Love.”
