Jews with Power: Advocacy in the Jewish Tradition

"What kinds of power do we have as individuals and as a community? What does the Jewish tradition have to say about how we should use it?What is a loving way to use our power? 

In this session, we will delve texts from the Bible, Biblical commentary, and from the Mussar (Jewish Ethical Development) tradition. Together we will explore what these textual paradigms can teach us about power and use them as a springboard for an open conversation about how we, as modern American Jews, can use our power in a loving way."
