Scholar-in-Residence Mini Weekend

Rabbi Tamir Nir from Jerusalem

April 20-21

Rabbi Nir is the spiritual leader of Kehillat Ahvat B’Kerem, the community that hosted our NVHC group during the trip in December 2017.  He is also the former deputy mayor of Jerusalem and is the current Director of the secular yeshiva, BINA in Tel Aviv.  He is a fascinating speaker and leader and will be talking about the evolving nature of non-Orthodox Judaism in Israel.

Friday night at 7pm, he will join us for Shabbat services and will give a talk titled “Reflecting on Change in Israeli Society.”

Saturday morning at 9:00 am as our teacher at Torah Talk, he will speak on “The Four Questions of Hatikvah and How it Relates to American Jewish Life.

He will also lead a study during Saturday’s luncheon at 12:15 pm entitled “Love your neighbor as yourself: Love for all or just for the people? A study of sources and live itself.”
