What does it mean to be a good person and a good Jew in 2015? How can we educate ourselves and our community in an attempt to enact that vision? We will explore answers to these questions from Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira, Rebbe of Piaseczno and the Warsaw Ghetto and author of several works including Derech HamelechChovat Hatalmidim, and Aish Kodesh.
