Join Zvi Hirschfield at Limmud Bay Area 2018!

Do you struggle to decode the fine line between refugees, asylum-seekers and infiltrators? What about making a distinction between public shaming and public service?

Thanks to our always incredible partner the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies we will have the opportunity to learn with the distinguished Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield about the competing Jewish values in a Jewish state and the ethical challenges of social media through a Jewish lens!

Zvi usually teaches Talmud, Halakha and Jewish Thought at Pardes and holds a B.A. in History from Columbia University and did graduate work at Harvard University in Medieval and Modern Jewish Thought. He studied at Yeshivat Har Etzion in Israel and has rabbinic ordination from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. He was the director of Judaica at the JCC of Cleveland and an instructor at the Cleveland College of Jewish Studies for many years. He also serves as a curriculum writer and is involved in staff training for the Nesiya Institute. His wife, Dina, is a faculty member of the Hebrew University School of Public Health, and they have four children.
