February 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

  • This event has passed.

Who can ask us for financial help? How do we maintain respect for people who need money from us? Is it religiously admirable, or something else, to allow ourselves to become poor? We’ll consider these and other questions in connection with texts from the Mishnah and Maimonides.

Member fee $25 or included in Friday morning package; non-member fee $35
