‘Nature and nurture’ may conjure up an old mental picture but the power of this image continues to resonate beyond the tension between genetic inheritance and patterns of human development.
This autumn Angela will look at ‘nature’ itself—our environment—and how Jewish tradition views it. Rosh Hashanah is heralding a sh’mittah—sabbatical—year, intended to relieve and redeem the land. With it comes the value of releasing economic burdens, for the sake of justice. In a pandemic—or post-pandemic—age, nature and nurture could hardly be more timely.
Angela will tackle these and related issues in her dynamic and interactive style. This is an original course, especially created for JW3.
