Chavruta - live and on stage!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Chavruta (learning in pairs) is one of Limmud’s great traditions and an opportunity to engage with text like never before! Delve into traditional and contemporary texts to discuss, debate and take part in the great dialogue of the Jewish people. Focusing on the theme of Money, watch and learn as some of the top minds at Limmud-Oz grapple with the issue of prosperity. What has value? Should we live in a material world? Who creates wealth? What is utopia?…
