Global Day of Jewish Learning

Global Day

 November 11, 2018

A day of study exploring the richness of Jewish texts along with more than 400 diverse communities in 48 countries and 6 continents for Global Day of Jewish Learning.

This year’s theme is Extraordinary Passages: Texts and Travels. 

At 10:00 am, Drisha educator Shira Hecht-Koller will be teaching on the topic The Journey of Yehuda Halevi: Ideal v. Real

In this lecture we will explore selected poems of the 11-12th century philosopher and poet, Yehuda Ha-Levi, from his early years among the circle of Jewish poets in Granada, to his journey, late in life, to the land of Israel. Along the way we will examine the immigrant experience, opportunities abandoned, and dreams sought after.
