Nafshenu is excited to announce the start this Thursday evening of a six-week education program on a topic close to the hearts of our South Jersey Jewish community – how Jews and peoples of different faiths and backgrounds get along. Student rabbis David Goodman and Josh Nelson will be team-teaching the class, which will look at the challenges of interfaith relations throughout Jewish history – from Biblical times to contemporary America. We’ll look at texts ranging from the Book of Exodus to the early rabbis to posts from online news and blog sites covering: tolerance vs. conflict, intermarriage vs. inmarriage, shared learning vs. going it alone.
