Join the Jewish Collaborative on Monday, October 2 at 9:30 AM for “What Does Your Sukkkah Say about You.” a special Advanced Learning Institute (ALI) session with Rabbi David Lazar. From promoting mitzvot to promoting social and political agendas, from describing this world to describing the world to come, from encouraging us to leave the comfort of our homes to encouraging us to welcome others into our midst, Sukkot decorations tell a colorful story of how Jews have observed and thought about this holiday over the last 230 years. Rabbi Lazar has lived and practiced across the spectrum of Jewish observance.

On Thursday October 5, CSP will present Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller, live on Zoom. “The God of Possibilities: God, Human Freedom and the Obligation to Heal the World” constitutes a personal effort at articulating a meaningful notion of God that is spiritually fulfilling, intellectually uncompromising and morally compelling. The search ranges across the Jewish tradition from the fundamentals of Biblical monotheism to Maimonides’ rationalism and onto Hasidic mysticism. The result is a contemporary notion of God that can nurture personal humility, the development of an ethical personality and a commitment “to do that which is right and good.” Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller recently celebrated his fortieth year of working with students and faculty as the Executive Director of the Yitzhak Rabin Hillel Center for Jewish Life at UCLA. He is currently Director Emeritus.
