JW3 and Limmud partner to bring you unexpected and poignant Jewish wisdom online.
In this 30-minute bite-size series, educators from across the community will share some of their favourite pieces of Jewish wisdom.
Our guest this week is Rabbi Isaiah Rothstein, who serves as rabbinic scholar and public affairs advisor for Jewish Federations of North America. Currently living in Harlem, Isaiah was raised in the Jewish community of Monsey, NY to a mixed-raced Orthodox family and is passionate about creating a world where civil liberties and human rights are for all people.
As a community scholar and advisor, Isaiah has supported Jewish communities in being deeply rooted in tradition while also engaged in the cosmopolitan issues of our generation. As a Jew of Colour and spiritual leader, song-writer and musician Isaiah believes in the power of song to bring healing into the world.
Previous guests in this series include JW3 Scholar-in Residence Clive Lawton, Teacher at Yeshivat Eretz Hatzvi Rabbi Alex Israel, Director of National Learning Initiatives at the Hadar Institute Rabbi Avi Strausberg, LSJS Teaching Fellow Lindsey Taylor-Guthartz, Rabbi Jeremy Borovich, and senior scholar for the JDC Rabbi Michael Paley.
