April – May 2019
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!
Every candidate up for election for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair will be in attendance at this critical VOICE meeting. We will talk about the upcoming June primary, increasing voter turnout, present our key issues to the candidates, and inspire you to get involved in this year’s local elections.
