Aseh L'cha Rav (Find Yourself a Teacher): Models of Leadership and Followership in Contemporary Jewish Life

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Jewish community is interested in - some might say, obsessed with - "leadership." But is there such a thing as "followership" - and, if so, what does it look like? In this session, we will explore a quite well-known text from Pirkei Avot (The Ethics of Our Fathers). We'll seek both to understand it in multiple ways, and to reflect on its contemporary salience.
