Rabbi Aryeh Cohen will teach from his newly released book, Justice in the City: An Argument from the Sources of Rabbinic Judaism. The text argues, based on the Babylonian Talmud, that a just city should be a community of obligation towards those who are not always visible: workers, the poor, and the homeless. Following Rabbi Cohen’s teaching, former Bend the Arc rabbinical intern Robin Podolsky will interview him. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
