The History of Chutzpah

Rabbi. Dr. Ed Feinstein

Join us February 9-10, 2018, for our annual Scholar-in-Residence Program, once again made possible through the generous support of the Sevin family. Our guest this year will be Rabbi Dr. Ed Feinstein, the Senior Rabbi of Valley Beth Shalom Congregation in Encino, California. A faculty member of the Ziegler Rabbinical School of the University of Judaism, the Wexner Heritage Program, and the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, Rabbi Feinstein is one of the most sought-after teachers and lecturers on the American Jewish scene.

With his unique blend of scholarship and humor, Rabbi Feinstein’s presentations will be devoted to “The History of Chutzpah,” tracing the Jewish idea of human empowerment through biblical, rabbinic and philosophical sources.

Rabbi Feinstein will be speaking three times throughout the weekend — Friday evening after dinner at 7:45 PM, during services Shabbat morning, and after a cholent Kiddush on Shabbat afternoon. (Childcare will be provided during the 3rd  lecture.)
