Shabbat Sustenance: Great Texts of America – “Tear Down This Wall” SpeechBy Emily Hummel
In this month’s Great Texts of America, we tackle one of the most famous speeches of modern American history: Ronald Reagan’s “Tear Down this Wall” speech. We will look at this speech through the lens of current events and study it using the same skills and devices we use to study Torah. Click here to read the speech, and click here to watch the original footage.
In our ongoing project to rebuild the habits and skills of Democracy, we will apply the same Jewish questioning we use to address the Torah instead to some of the most important documents in our country’s history. The conversation will be lively and bagels are provided!
