Seeing The Other
A startling NBC News poll recently showed that nearly half of all incoming college sophomores say they would likely NOT choose to live with someone who supported an opposing candidate in the 2020 presidential election. With every passing day, we seem to be getting more polarized from each other than we ever thought possible.
Yet, even as people everywhere seem to be pulling apart, our Jewish Tradition encourages us to come together – to not only tolerate others, but to engage with those who are different than ourselves.
On the eve of the High Holy Days, please join Rabbi Resnick for a lively discussion on how we view and relate to those who hold very different views from our own. To get us started, we’ll begin our program with a short film about one of the most polarized places on the planet – Hebron. From there, we’ll explore the limits of tolerance, how Judaism looks at civil political discourse, as well as what it expects from us in our own interpersonal interactions.
