Following on the success of our direct-to-public programming for Tikkun Leil Shavuot and Selihot, and in a continuing effort to help our rabbis and congregations during these trying times, the RA, USCJ, JTS and Ziegler are excited to announce a joint initiative to offer high quality adult education opportunities to all those interested in participating. ScholarStream is a four part series which will give communities the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s leading scholars and engage deeply with our texts and traditions.
The Ziegler series will be offered on the following dates and times, meeting for one hour each week:
Equity, Forgiveness and Intersectionality
Wednesdays at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT
