Global Day of Jewish Learning
November 17, 1pm FREE with RSVPStep 1: RSVP Step 2: Register for Workshops
Words matter. From ancient arguments to modern meanings, from raising our voices to remaining silent, words have power. Words can create. Words can harm or heal. Words can explain, or they can obscure. Even our silences speak volumes. On Global Day of Jewish Learning, join your Cincinnati community as communities around the world gather locally to discuss words and their impact on our lives, using Jewish texts as a starting point for conversations.
The day will feature a live recording with the Unorthodox Podcast*, as well as leading thinkers, rabbis, and scholars. We will explore Jewish wisdom and the way our words influence our thoughts and the world.
Global Day of Jewish Learning is a designated day each year when Jewish communities across the globe study a shared theme from a variety of perspectives rooted in Jewish texts. This year’s theme is Words Matter – Speaking Volumes.
