Radical Hope: Prophetic Visions of Resurrection and their Rabbinic Legacy with Rabbi Dr. Benjamin Samuels

CJP invites you to attend The Rabbi Samuel Chiel (zt”l) Genesis Forum 2020. Bring your lunch and join us for these fascinating, free discussions led by some of Greater Boston's most sought after teachers. All are welcome, no experience or Jewish background is required to enjoy this stimulating exploration.

We live in tumultuous times. In past generations, Jews have dealt with chaos by dreaming of a better future. In this year’s Genesis Forum Downtown, our sessions will look at models of idyllic dreaming from the Jewish past as a way to build our own dreams for the Jewish present.
