With Joe Rosenstein -  In person + virtual

Pirkei Avot is the only tractate of the Mishnah that teaches no laws and tells no stories. Instead, it introduces ethical and judicial principles and advises scholars, would[1]be scholars, and the rest of us how our tradition was transmitted and how to interact with our contemporaries in both intimate and communal settings. Following a lifetime of studying and teaching this text, Joe Rosenstein recently completed a book entitled Reflections on Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers): Not Just What My Rebbe Taught Me, in which he examines each teaching, as is usually done, but in which he also looks at the text from a broader perspective—identifying the primary ethical principles that are contained therein and musing on their continuing relevance.

There will be three sessions. The first session will provide an overview of Pirkei Avot and will review selected teachings. The second session will focus on the major innovations in Judaism that took place in the first two centuries of the common era, as reflected in Pirkei Avot. In the third session, we will read and discuss a selection of the 88 ethical instructions Joe has extracted from Pirkei Avot. You are welcome to attend any or all of these sessions.

An Ideal Husband, Kelsey Theatre & Shakespeare 70

Sunday January 22, 2023
2:00 PM

Government minister, Sir Robert Chiltem, is respectable, well-off, with a loving wife. When the conniving Mrs. Cheveley appears with evidence of a past misdeed and threatens to blackmail him, his best friend tries (through a number of comedic entanglements) to lead Robert and his family out of harm. But there are others who have desires and ambitions all their own. Written in 1895, there are countless elements of today’s turbulent times: feminism, blackmail, political corruption, morality and mistrust, love and forgiveness, all served up with the effervescent Oscar Wilde wit. Will this cocktail mix of characters finally learn what it means to be “an ideal husband”?

The meetings are informal readings in which any musically interested person may join the chorus. There are no separate rehearsals and no auditions.
