Steinsaltz is done: 11/7 Global Day of Jewish Learning
Posted by Oyster on October 20, 2010
After translating the entire Talmud into modern Hebrew, and now into English, over the course of his whole adult life, I think this rav deserves a little Fabrengin’. ~Oyster
The Oshman Family JCC presents:
Global Day of Jewish Learning
Sunday, November 7, 9:45am-12:00pm, Palo Alto
MORE INFO: http://www.paloaltojcc.org
On November 7, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz culminates his five decades of
ground-breaking work translating the Talmud to make it accessible to
everyone. The Global Day of Jewish Learning honors that achievement by
bringing together Jewish communities around the world in a historic,
unifying celebration. Join us for this special celebration of learning!
Rabbi Steinsaltz’s mission is based on the conviction that the
foundational texts of our heritage belong to us all. It is upon this
pillar that the Global Day of Jewish learning stands. The day reminds us
that while we may be dispersed across the globe, we are bound together
through our sacred sources and values. While we are celebrating the
momentous achievement of Rabbi Steinsaltz, we are also celebrating the
text that unites all Jews.
* Join together with Jewish learners of all kinds – from your neighborhood
and from all over the world

Presented in partnership with Congregation Kol Emeth, Congregation Beth
Am, Jewish Study Network, and Bureau of Jewish Education.
