Library Presents Two Part Series: Judaism and …
Lakewood Public Library presents a two-part series on Judaism and its relevance to ongoing concerns in our lives.
The first program, Judaism and the Environment, takes place on Thursday, February 16 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium. What does the ancient religion of Judaism have to say about protecting the environment? We will consider the concepts of bal tashchit (“do not destroy”) and l’vadah ul’ shamrah (“to till and to tend”).
The second program, Judaism and Particularism and Universalism, takes place on Thursday, February 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium and will consider the balance between particularism and universalism through the lens of the Siddur, a Jewish prayer book.
Both programs will be led by Rabbi Enid Lader, the Rabbi of Beth Israel – The West Temple. Admission is free and open to all.
