Ancient Wisdom for Modern Tsuris with Dr. Joshua Holo in Conversation with Rabbi Lisa Berney

October 22, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This session will explore how Jews throughout history have dealt with moments of tumult. It will examine how they survived, adapted, and even learned to thrive amidst chaos and uncertainty, and the lessons we can glean today from our people’s history.

Dr. Joshua Holo is the Dean of the HUC-JIR Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles Campus and Associate Professor of Jewish History. He co-founded HUC’s digital learning platform called the College Commons, and hosts a regular podcast called “College Commons Podcast.” Together with religious leaders in the Los Angeles neighborhood of HUC, he co-founded the Neighborhood Religious Leadership Coalition. He is the editor for the Brill Series on Jewish Studies; was a regular contributor of Torah commentary to the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles; and penned an article on liberal Zionism titled “Peering into the Nationalist Mirror” in The Fragile Dialogue (CCAR Press, 2017).
