6:30 pm: Torah Talks through Rabbi Eyes


February 8, 2024

Join Rabbi Scott Hausman-Weiss (and Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen when available) for a deep dive into the Torah portion of the week.  Based on the Jewish calendar, the Torah is read and studied by “parsha” (portion) “in order of appearance.”

Through the eyes of the classical, rabbinic commentators, we will study their interpretations, and get to know and understand the tools of interpretation, utilized by Jewish commentators for centuries.

Through multiple modes of learning (lecture, diads, journaling), we will ask and answer:

1.   What is the Torah telling me/us this week?

2.   How did our ancestors understand these words and are there implications for my life and today’s world?

3.   How might I live my own life like I’m writing sacred text?

1:00 pm: Lives of the Spirit Workshop: Fannie Lou Hamer


February 17, 2024

Presented by Glynda C. Carr - Higher Heights Leadership Fund

As president, CEO and co-founder of Higher Heights for America, Glynda C. Carr is at the center of the national movement to grow Black women’s political power from the voting booth to elected office.

In 2011, Carr and Kimberly Peeler-Allen co-founded Higher Heights to address the dearth of organizing resources for politically active Black women and the lack of support for those who were considering seeking elected office. Through her leadership, the organization has developed several innovative programs and efforts that have quickly solidified its reputation as the political home and go-to resource for progressive Black women.

Carr is the co-creator of #BlackWomenLead—a powerful coalition movement that is creating an environment for Black women to run, win and lead—and the Higher Heights-powered #BlackWomenVote, a nonpartisan voter-activism campaign that serves as an independent and trusted voice for Black women’s political concerns. Her work to date has helped to elect 11 Black women to the U.S. Congress–including one to the Senate–and increase the number of Black women holding statewide executive office–including helping to elect the first Black woman to serve as New York State attorney general.

Carr has appeared on the 2018 Essence magazine Woke 100 list. She has contributed to CNN.com, TheRoot.com, Ebony.com, HuffPost.com and BET.com; appeared on Cheddar, FOX News Live and MSNBC; and has been interviewed and quoted in the Washington Post, New York Times, US News, BuzzFeed and numerous other outlets.
