Please join Rabbi Victor Gross and Rabbi Nadya Gross, founders of Yerusha.
Yerusha (Hebrew: legacy) was founded to carry the legacies of our teachers and build a legacy for future generations. Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi was a primary teacher and inspired our work in Deep Ecumenism (the idea that we can best serve the needs of humanity and the planet through participatory engagement with other faiths and traditions). We will explore how one carries the legacy of a great teacher into the future, honoring their teaching while remaining authentic to oneself and the changing needs and sensitivities of the present. After a brief presentation of Reb Zalman’s gift of Deep Ecumenism and our work with it, we will open to a discussion of the concept and a broader look at the legacies we all carry.
