torah

Join BJ for a new Sunday morning learning program following Morning Minyan. These sessions will be led by prominent rabbis, partners, and friends that will teach a monthly Torah class LIVE from Israel. Each class will touch on a different topic that is being chosen carefully by the teacher. We invite you all to join other BJ members to enrich themselves and learn something new.

Spreading Rumors and Ruining Reputations: The Torah of Social Media
The Jewish tradition has much to teach about the danger in causing someone public embarrassment or spreading false rumors. How can we translate this wisdom into guidelines for our activity on social media?

Leon Wiener Dow directs the Beit Midrash at Kolot and is the creator and host of the podcast Pod Drash. He received semicha from R’ David Hartman ז״ל and his doctorate from Bar Ilan University. His most recent book, The Going: A Meditation on Jewish Law won a 2018 National Jewish Book Award, and his Your Walking on the Way [Hebrew] was published by Bar Ilan University Press. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife and their five children.
