Orthodox Jewish Forum

of Highland Park / Edison

The Orthodox Jewish Forum of Highland Park and Edison is a community wide educational endeavor to discuss contemporary issues and ideas in the ideology of Torah Umada. The aim is an open discussion and dialogue on contemporary topics. Each discussion is focused on a particular topic with a presenter followed by a discussion in an effort for engaged dialogue. This forum is open to the community with sessions held at various communal institutions and synagogues.

 

For our upcoming event, Rabbi Wieder will focus on two aspects of racism through the prism of Torah.  First, a halakhic/hashkafic  evaluation of racism towards specific ethnic groups as well as towards non-Jews more generally.  Second will be an exploration of the spiritual character deficiencies implied in the bearers of racist beliefs.
