Hot Topic: Peaceful Transfer of Power

  • This event has passed.

For the first time in many of our lifetimes, the question of whether the upcoming election will bring a peaceful transition of power is a live one. But it’s not a new one.

“From Moses to Joshua, from Joshua to the Elders” and so forth, reads our most sacred texts. Judaism holds as one of its most foundational values the peaceful transition from one leader to the next. Or does it? What if the sitting leader refuses to leave office? What if their replacement is corrupt and unethical? This class led by Rabbi Shira will use Jewish text and tradition to surface answers to these questions and more.
