Rav David Stav

The Jewish People and the State of Israel:A Conversation with Rav David Stav

Sunday, November 15th at 8:00 PM

What does it mean to have a Jewish identity; to guarantee the Jewish future of the State of Israel? The religious and non-religious need to work together, especially in these Corona times. We begin this path by focusing on secular-religious relations and state issues that connect Israeli society to the Jewish State.

Rabbi David Stav is Chief Rabbi of the City of Shoham & Chairman of the Tzohar organization – the largest rabbinic group of the Modern Orthodox (Dati Leumi) community in Israel. Rav Stav is a graduate of Yeshivat Mercaz HaRav and is an ordained judge by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel.

Under Rav Stav’s courageous leadership, Tzohar has emerged as a dominant social force, paving the way for a more ethical, inclusive and inspiring approach to Zionist, Jewish life in Israel.

Sarah Robinson

Women in the Mishna: The Lives and Legacies of Beruria and Yalta – with Community Scholar Sarah Robinson

Though rabbinic literature is largely androcentric -- in that it was a text written by men with the presumption of male consumption -- two notable exceptions are the magnificent stories about Beruria and Yalta. In this series we'll do a close reading of their stories. In a world which has become more receptive to women's involvement in Torah learning and leadership, we can turn to the stories of these Talmudic pioneers to learn for inspiration and direction.

  • Tuesday, November 17th at 8:00 PM – The Life and Legacy of Beruria Part 1
  • Tuesday, November 24th at 8:00 PM- The Life and Legacy of Beruria Part 2
  • Tuesday, December 1st at 8:00 PM – The Life and Legacy of Yalta Part 1
  • Tuesday, December 8th  at 8:00 PM – The Life and Legacy of Yalta Part 2
