Third Shabbat - Global Day of Jewish Learning

  • JCC 2 Millstone Campus Drive St. Louis, MO, 63146 United States (map)

We will mark the annual Global Day of Jewish Learning with a special Shabbat study session on “The Ugly Vessel and the Craftsman” led by Dave Zuckerman. The overall theme for this year’s Global Day of Jewish Learning is “Beauty and Ugliness.” Among the goals of this annual international effort are to spark a love of Jewish learning and to build community, both locally and internationally, by engaging diverse groups of all beliefs, ages and backgrounds.

Our Third Shabbat learning will address the question: “Is there value in appreciating both the vessel and what it contains?” We will explore different ideas of how to assess beauty and ugliness and their sources. We'll also dive into some interesting, and perhaps even humorous, stories from the Talmud.
