Wisdom & Coffee Summer Edition

Saturday, August 3, 2024 28 Tammuz 5784

9:30 AM - 10:30 AMCongregation Shaarey Zedek

The western belief in the soul leads to profound decisions on the nature of life and implications for sustaining life. This belief also leads us to ask: Does the existence of the soul differentiate humans from the animal kingdom, requiring perhaps better treatment for humans than animals? Does the existence of the soul differentiate humans from artificial intelligence (e.g., robots) or might we one day treat robots the same way we treat humans? Join Rabbi Aaron Starr for a conversation on the Jewish belief in the soul and other aspects of humanity that make the human species unique.

Offered monthly and including a great breakfast, Wisdom and Coffee provides an opportunity for learning and conversation on a Shabbat morning that is entirely separate from our prayer service. Participants may choose to dress casually and come just for the Wisdom and Coffee, or they may stay for the Shabbat service as well. Coffee and a special breakfast will be served. 

Wisdom and Coffee is generously sponsored by Shelley and Joel Tauber.
