Connecting in Disconnected Times
with Rex Perlmeter

Tuesday, January 5, 12, 19, 26, 2021
2:00 PM ET
A strongly identified theme among our members is the
experience of feelings of isolation. The experience of
these last months has made those feelings more familiar
to all of us and has amplified them for many of those
already struggling. This group is offered to those whose
experience is further exacerbated by being geographically
alone, unpartnered by choice or otherwise, or having
lost partnership through divorce or death. In this group,
participants will have the opportunity to share and
reflect upon the experience and to draw strength and
comfort from one another in the process. Group size is
limited to 12. Reach out directly to Rex at
rperlmeter@ccarnet.net to discuss participating.

" And Do Not Turn Aside to Right or
Left " : Justice in Light of the Torah
with Catherine Madsen

Monday, January 25, 2021
2:00 PM ET
In the contemporary political imagination, social
justice seems synonymous with activism. The
Torah has no concept of activism: it speaks simply
of justice and commands certain forms of action.
How does the Torah understand the nature and
implementation of justice? How can its direct and
practical approach help us to stay focused on real
needs and avoid theoretical tail-chasing and wasted
energy? We will look at a variety of texts from a preideological age to present-day ideologies.
