Rabbi Michael Strassfeld’s Judaism Disrupted re-envisions a Judaism that cultivates inner qualities such as gratitude, patience and generosity, reshaping the tradition into something radically new. By bringing into focus the ethical imperative to make the world a better and more just place for all its inhabitants, it calls on us to live with purpose. The practices—new, old, and reconstructed—form a technology to make meaning in our lives and in our world. This program is sponsored by the University of Virginia Jewish Studies Program.
