Al Regel Achat
Judaism on One Foot, Your most Pressing Questions about Jewish Life Answered

Dasee Berkowitz, Roni Handler, David Ingber, Lori Koffman

Identity & Global Culture, Sacred Text & Thought, Spiritual Practice

While they might not literally be standing on one foot, this great group of Rabbis will follow in the line of Rabbi Hillel who shared the essence of Torah to an inquisitive pupil “on one foot” (that is, briefly). Here’s your chance to ask any pressing question you have about Jewish life from the ordinary to the extraordinary and our distinguished panel will offer up some thoughtful answers.
