Rabbi Alter’s Classes

Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30 CBINT offers The Ethical Life: Jewish Values in an Age of Choice, facilitated by Rabbi Alter.

Each session includes a short videotaped lecture by a scholar from JTS, a discussion facilitated by Rabbi Alter based on materials provided in advance, and a 3-5 minute video featuring a person contending with that session’s ethical dilemma in their life and work. Among the topics addressed: Food Production, Mass Incarceration, Modern Day Slavery, Disability, and Lying.
