    The Global Day of Jewish Learning

    Beauty and Ugliness

    When: Sunday, 11/12/2017 8:45 AM - 10:00 AM

    Where: Room M-119

    On November 12th, Jews around the world will share a day of Jewish learning, dialogue and exploration, joining together in celebration of all that unites us.

    Join Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan, Lehrhaus Judaica and the OFJCC, for: "The Plain, the Pretty, the Beautiful the Garish and the OMG! The Ethics and Economics of Aesthetics" or "You paid how much for that Etrog/Wedding/Bar Mitzvah (Safari)/Building?"—an hour-long investigation and discussion of this Talmudic text (Bava Kamma 9b). 

    We will study the text about Rabbi Zera who taught: "In the performance of a mitzvah one should be willing to pay even one-third more [than the normal price]." 

    What does that mean in our competitive, material, affluent world
