The Global Day of Jewish Learning is a project to unite Jewish communities across the world through study of our shared texts. The learning-events are live-streamed for those not near enough to attend. This year’s Global Day theme is “Speaking Volumes”. From ancient arguments to modern meanings, from raising our voices to remaining silent, people the world over will explore how and why words matter.
The featured speaker will be Rabbi David. A. Teutsch, Ph.D. The program description is below.
Feedback that Works: The Art of Tochecha
We will begin with what Rambam (Maimonides) says about the obligation to offer rebuke and what makes such conversations effective, consider some contemporary situations that need our feedback, and talk about how we overcome our internal resistance to addressing wrongdoing.
