As you know, Rabbi Steinsaltz completed his extraordinary translation of and commentary on the Talmud last November in 2010.
Not surprisingly, the Rabbi did not want a celebration. Rather, Rabbi Steinsaltz agreed that a day of learning Jewish texts to mark the occasion would be a step in the right direction.
The result was The Global Day of Jewish Learning, when 600 events in 400 communities in 48 countries participated.
Both the content and the spirit of that day had such value to so many that it is now an annual event.
If your community is already holding an event, you may want to participate.
If you and your study partner, or study group, or chavurah, or minyan, or synagogue, or a few friends want to join in, I urge you to:
• register (free).
• receive terrific curriculum material (free)
• receive publicity materials. (free)
Put your community on our Global Day of Jewish Learning "map" this year.
Please call Lizzy Bentley at the Aleph Society. Lizzy will be happy to send you the Community Resource Guidebook which will provide further information.
