Charlotte’s fourth Global Day of Jewish Learning will continue this year on Sunday, November 11. Organized by the Aleph Society and Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz, the Global Day of Jewish Learning is an annual event where Jewish communities across the globe study a shared theme from a variety of perspectives rooted in Jewish texts. This year’s theme is: Extraordinary Passages – Texts and Travels.
This year’s Global Day of Jewish Learning will feature two Israeli authors who will share their journeys with our community.
Aryeh Green, author of “My Israel Trail: Finding Peace in the Promised Land” will talk about his fascinating journey walking the land of Israel, his love for the land and the people, and his spiritual transformation after this 42-day hike.
In his book, “God Is in the Crowd,” financier and former Israeli combat pilot Tal Keinan reflects on a lifetime of varied experiences with his Jewish identity, providing a heartfelt, well-reasoned reflection on the Jewish people.
Participants will also have the option to choose from a variety of workshops on extraordinary passages with local rabbis. Families with young children could embark on their own journey with PJ Library’s “Dinosaur’s Journey to Israel.”
This year’s Global Day of Jewish Learning is spearheaded by the Center for Jewish Education. This program is supported by a Jewish Federation’s Impact and Innovation Grant and is in collaboration with multiple local Jewish Synagogues and organizations.
