JTS: The Certainty of Uncertainty

November 30, 2020 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

LIVING A LIFE OF MEANING

The Certainty of Uncertainty

Monday, November 30, 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET

Psalm 84, quoted in the Havdalah service, assures us that human felicity arises out of trust in God. But trust is hard to come by, and felicity seems remote in times of duress. In this session we will examine biblical texts that acknowledge the challenges of doubt and uncertainty and offer ways of meeting those trials with hope, faith, and trust. 

With Dr. Alan Cooper, Elaine Ravich Professor of Jewish Studies, JTS. 

Note: The Zoom link for this session will be in the confirmation email that you will receive after you register.

Empty Nesters Movie Night

Join the Empty Nesters for a movie watch party on Zoom.

This evening’s featured film is Hava Nagila, a documentary on the history, mystery and meaning of the ubiquitous Jewish standard.  It’s to music what the bagel is to food – a Jewish staple that has transcended its origins and become a worldwide hit. Bob Dylan sang it. Elvis, too. And that’s only the beginning when it comes to Hava Nagila. Follow the infectious party song on its fascinating journey from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the culs-de-sac of America in this hilarious and surprisingly deep film. Featuring interviews with Harry Belafonte, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, Leonard Nimoy, Regina Spektor and more, Hava Nagila (the Movie) takes viewers from Ukraine and Israel to the Catskills, Greenwich Village and Hollywood, using the song as a springboard to explore Jewish history and identity and to spotlight the cross-cultural connections that can only be achieved through music.
