What is Judaism?
Judaism is one of the oldest monotheistic religions and was founded over 3500 years ago in the Middle East. Jews believe that God appointed the Jews to be his chosen people in order to set an example of holiness and ethical behavior to the world.
He also spoke about Rebbe’s final days, and how he was present with him almost right up until the end when Rebbe passed on. His stories, as well as his explanation of Jewish traditions, and the way he integrates them into his teachings for his interfaith congregation at the New Synagogue of Long Island were emotional and touched all our hearts.

After some class discussion around the AFSI Affirmations and Principles, Jon spoke about the process and technique of sermon development. Using examples and anecdotes from his long career as a minister, he gives some practical and sometimes humorous advice on the subject. As he says in the piece, the attached handout is a companion piece to this talk but it is best read separately afterwards, not during Jon’s talk.

After our lunch, Rabbi Paris surprised us by returning at the start of the afternoon to share the music of someone he recognizes as one of the “20th- Century Kabbalists” who “. . .might not have known they were Kabbalists.” I’m sure we’ll all recognize the song he plays but perhaps will add a new dimension to our experience . . . A brief discussion follows. The Kabbalistic Historical Calendar handout was also distributed in this session but it is to study later.Click here: https://youtu.be/TZnN_7WP6_Q
Students shared with the whole group after the “experiment,” as well, and even in listening to their responses to the experience, you can get to know them better as well. During the period that was not recorded (it was quite noisy with all those conversations going on at one time!), I myself participated by having a text chat with one of our students who was watching the class at home via live-streaming, so we each got to participate in our own way. Feel free to send some feedback about this segment as well as the rest of the class and other interactions you may be having with fellow students.Click here: https://youtu.be/McT5drdHDKU
