A KBI program/Shalom Hartman Institute curriculum led by Rabbi Adina Lewittes

Judaism is defined both by a set of beliefs and values and by identification with the Jewish people.
The massacre on October 7, 2023, and the ensuing and ongoing war with Hamas have highlighted the notion of peoplehood - intensifying if for those long immersed in the Jewish community, and reawakening if for those distanced or estranged.

What does peoplehood mean? How does belonging to a people interact with one's personal ideas and faith?  What tension might emerge between them and how might we resolve them? How do we balance commitment to our own people and commitment to the human family?

The entire of Ottawa community is invited to join this series.
