Ahavat Hinam: How Unconditional Love can Heal the World

A special session with Rabbi Marc Soloway...

We are right in the middle of the three week period of mourning culminating in Tisha b'Av, which commemorates the destruction of two Temples and endless tragedy throughout history. What a downer in the midst of the openness and summer loving we might be feeling. Is there a way to make emotional and spiritual sense of this darkness in the light and heat of the summer? We will sing, meditate, study and discuss this question, especially in the context of love and hate and inner Temples.

Marc hasn't lived in London for 10 years, but grew up here. Once an actor and storyteller, he is now a rabbi in Boulder, Colorado in the foothills of the Rockies, where he straddles the worlds of Conservative (Masorti) Judaism and Jewish Renewal.

The Open Talmud Project

Moishe House London are delighted to be supporting the Open Talmud Project, which this year will take place at locations in Hampstead Garden Suburb.

The Open Talmud Project is a ground-breaking initiative promoting meaningful study of Jewish texts by teachers from across the Jewish spectrum for anyone who wants to learn. Following a highly successfully start in 2009, we’re back with a bigger and better programme for 2010. Taking place July 22nd – 25th the Open Talmud is a 4 day extravaganza of Jewish text learning, covering Talmud, Tanach, Halacha and Philosophy.

The Open Talmud is unique in the UK – there is no another course offering serious cross-denominational learning, and no other opportunity to engage in high quality learning in such an open mind environment. Come and be part of this new way of doing Judaism!

'This was Talmud as I imagined the Rabbis did it - engaged, meaningful, deeply personal, and loudly argumentative'
Rabbi Natan Levy

'Grass-roots, post-denominational, quality Torah study - that's what the Open Talmud Project embodied'
Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand

'Like studying in Jerusalem again, but saving on the carbon credits'
Adam Driscoll – participant

The Open Tamud Project is supported by Jeneration, Marom and Moishe House London

YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE

You may have seen that some of our events are run or co-produced by community members who want to make our space theirs too.  If you have a skill or idea worth sharing, you can easily make it a high quality, thought-provoking, fun and, as much as possible, free MoHoLo event, whether secular or Jewish-related.  From maintenance skills to Maimonides: this house is your house. Let us know what you'd like to do.

Much love

Aviad, Brett, Joel, Rachel and Tali
