Rabbi Andrea L. Weiss, PhD, speaking
We are thrilled that Rabbi Andrea L. Weiss, PhD, Provost of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute (the seminary for Reform Rabbis) will be in Dallas and speaking at Temple Emanu-El, April 11-13. Dr. Weiss is the editor of the newly published book, American Values Religious Voices: 100 Days 100 Letters which include letters written to the President and members of the United States Senate and Congress over the first 100 days of the presidency in 2018. Each letter was written by a different scholar of sacred scripture, and each is more inspirational than the next. The letters are powerful statements about what we, people of many faiths, cultures and ethnicities believe about the values of our country and the dreams we have for ourselves, our families and our communities. Here is the link to the project which also has information about the new book. American Values Religious Voices | 100 Days. 100 Letters.
Dr. Weiss will be speaking about her book on Thursday April 11 at 7 p.m. in the Stern Chapel at Temple Emanu-El, and we hope you and members of your community will join us for this exciting presentation. Here is a pdf of the invitation for you to share widely. (For security reasons, please RSVP in advance.)
FOR LEADERS: We invite you to join us, as faith leaders and academics, for brunch with Rabbi Weiss on Friday April 12 from 10am-12noon at the Communities Foundation. She will speak with us about how to use this book as a tool for building interfaith relationships in a variety of different settings, and we will have the chance to practice that work together. If you have colleagues that would be interested, please share this invitation with them. There is no charge for the event, but reservations are necessary for planning purposes. (And your reservation will assure you a complimentary, signed copy of her book!) You can RSVP using this link: https://participate.tedallas.org/interfaithclergybrunch.
We are proud and excited to be collaborating together to make this possible and hope you will be with us.
