Friday Noon Study Group

Friday, August 23, 12:00-1:00 

Our study group will enjoy a short summer recess during August 2,9, and 16.

We will resume our discussions on August 23 when we begin a discussion of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’s To Heal a Fractured World:  The Ethics of Responsibility. 

What are our duties to others, to society, and to humanity? How do we live a meaningful life in an age of global uncertainty and instability? In To Heal a Fractured World, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks offers answers to these questions by looking at the ethics of responsibility. In his signature plainspoken, accessible style, Rabbi Sacks shares with us traditional interpretations of the Bible, Jewish law, and theology, as well as the works of philosophers and ethicists from other cultures, to examine what constitutes morality and moral behavior.

Jonathan Sacks is the former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Great Britain. He is the award-winning author of a dozen previous books, writes frequently for the London Times and other periodicals. Rabbi Sacks was knighted in 2005.

Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from 12-1, in the CBI Library.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise or attendance at previous Friday study group sessions.     Copies of Rabbi Sacks’s book are available at a variety of internet outlets.  If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at jbjacoby@uncc.edu.

Torah on Tap @ Archetype Brewing
Aug 25 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Torah on Tap @ Archetype Brewing | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Join us on the last Sunday of the month at Archetype Brewing (dowtown north) for a refreshing and often provocative discussion over a pint (or two) of great brew. Each month, we take on a new topic – often ripped from the headlines of today’s news. We spend the first 45 minutes wrapping our arms around it, defining it, dissecting and analyzing it from various viewpoints. Then we spend the rest of the time discussing it from Judaism’s point of view.

  • What’s Judaism’s take on universal healthcare?
  • Would Moses walk the streets of Chicago today packing heat?
  • Is it okay to punch a white supremacist?

Torah on Tap gives us a chance to learn, vent, share and, most of all, understand what 4,000 years of cultural development, debate and dialogue has to say about some of the issues that confront us today. Torah on Tap is free and open to all. Varying viewpoints are not only welcome, but encouraged.

In addition to drinks, Archetype also offers small, locally-made bites available for purchase, including Poppy Popcorn, Asheville Pretzel Company pretzels, and Hickory Nut Gap Farm meat sticks. Plenty of parking in the rear.

See you there!
