Rabbi Dr. Shai Held In Conversation: Judaism is About Love

Sunday, August 18, 2024 14 Av 5784

1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

We are pleased to welcome Rabbi Shai Held, one of the most influential Jewish thinkers and leaders in America, to CSI to speak on his new book, Judaism is About Love. Rabbi Held received the prestigious Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education, and has been named multiple times to Newsweek’s list of the most influential rabbis in America and to the Forward's list of the most prominent Jews in the world. He is the author of Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence (2013) and The Heart of Torah: Essays on the Weekly Torah Portion (2017). His new book, Judaism is About Love, has just been published by Farrar, Straus, & Giroux.

In his latest book, Rabbi Held offers the radical and moving argument that love belongs as much to Judaism as it does to Christianity. He sets out to contradict centuries of widespread misrepresentation that Christianity is the religion of love, and Judaism the religion of law. Rabbi Held shows that love is foundational and constitutive of true Jewish faith, animating the singular Jewish perspective on injustice and protest, grace, family life, responsibilities to our neighbors and even our enemies, and chosenness. Join Rabbi Held for a close look at some of the core concepts of his book and discover the forgotten heart of Jewish theology and practice: love.
