Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Sh’ma Listen! Speaker Series, Congregation B’nai Amoona and the Center for Jewish Learning are bringing Rabbi Irwin Kula to the community. Kula will present “Beyond the Tribe: Judaism as a Path of Human Flourishing” Sunday, March 11 at 7:00 pm at Congregation B’nai Amoona, 324 S. Mason Road, 63141.
Trends in the American religious landscape show that we are at the beginning of demographic, sociological and technological transformations that are dramatically altering the ways people create their identities, form communities and make meaning. Every domain is being affected – newspapers and music, retail and government, taxis and hotels, health and education. What are the implications for the products, services and delivery systems, the resources, insights and teachings of religion in general and for our Judaism and Jewish community in particular?
Rabbi Irwin Kula is a disruptive spiritual innovator and rogue thinker. A 7th generation rabbi, he is Co-President of CLAL, the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, a do-tank committed to making Jewish a public good. A thought leader on the intersection of innovation, religion and human flourishing, Irwin has worked with leaders from the Dalai Lama to Queen Noor and with organizations, foundations and businesses in the United States and around the world to inspire people to live with greater passion, purpose, creativity and compassion. He is the Co-Founder and Executive Editor of The Wisdom Daily.
Sh’ma: Listen! Speaker Series is generously funded by the Lubin-Green Foundation, a Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, and Hank Webber and Chris Jacobs.
