GDJL returns to in-person format on Nov. 13 at Center


The Weinstein JCC is proud to host Limmud’s Global Day of Jewish Learning, an international day of study and unity.

Event chairs, Melissa and Andy Brownstein and Elaine and Mitchell Ragone, along with committee members Millie Becker, Claudia Biegler, Gary Goldberg, Bonnie Kasoff, Julie Mullian and Amy Melnick-Scharf, invite the community to join them for this special event on Sunday, Nov. 13 from 2-5 p.m.

After two years following a virtual format due to the pandemic, we are excited to be able to bring this program back in-person at the Weinstein JCC.

Local Richmond pulpit Rabbis will be presenting topics based on the very timely and relevant theme, Rebuilding: How do we heal ourselves and our relationships? How do we proceed after national tragedies? How have the Jewish People moved forward following times of crisis?

The GDJL event will consist of two 45-minute learning sessions in which participants will have the opportunity to choose which presentation topics to attend.

Following the learning sessions, we are excited to bring all the Rabbis together for what promises to be a lively and interactive panel discussion facilitated by Roberta Oster, experienced moderator, community member and production director at VPM.

This will be an amazing opportunity to hear from all our Rabbis on a variety of meaningful topics.

Here is a list of the learning session topics for this year’s Global Day of Jewish Learning:

“Rebuilding the Past: Envisioning the Future – Rabbi Yossel Kranz

“Rebuilding Family Relationships” – Rabbi Dovid Asher

“Repairing and Rebuilding Relationships” – Rabbi Michael Knopf

“Can’t We All Just Get Along?” How To Build Community Despite Our Differences” – Rabbi Ahuva Zaches

“Picking Up, Dusting Off, and Bouncing Back” – Rabbi Scott Nagel

“The Conspiracy Against the Soul” – Rabbi Patrick Beaulier

TBD – Rabbi Sherry Grinsteiner

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from religious leaders across all denominations of Judaism and engage in thoughtful conversation with fellow members of the community.

GDJL is free and open to the public. While walk-ins are welcome, advanced registration is encouraged as space is limited.
