As a Jewish teenager, I worry about school, extracurricular activities, homework, walking the dog, and of course, sleep. During the summer, I have no worries (well, I still walk the dog). This summer, instead of sleeping till noon and staying up until 2 a.m., I chose to discover my Jewish identity.
As momentum builds towards the culmination of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz's 45-year quest to translate the Talmud, over 256 Jewish communities around the world are planning study programs on the Global Day of Jewish Learning, Sunday, November 7th, to mark the occasion. Just four weeks away, communities that have signed on for Global Day now include: Mumbai, Havana, Detroit, Miami, Bratislava, Melbourne, Rio de Janeiro, Washington, Moscow, Los Angeles, and all points in between.
