For the People of the Book, learning is a commandment,
a lifelong imperative that can take many forms.
This Sunday, Feb. 23,
the public-affairs program "Sanctuary," which airs at 11 a.m. on ABC7-Channel
7, explores the rich world of Jewish learning for adults, a world that can
immerse students in the centuries-old wisdom of sages and transform how they
view their own lives today.
From rabbinic scholars to neophytes with
little Jewish background and no knowledge of Hebrew, there's a program for
just about everyone, regardless of age, observance or denomination.
Featured are the Florence Melton School for Adult Jewish Learning; Svara:
A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva; Yeshiva University Torah Mitzion Kollel; and
the collection of educational programs offered by JCC Chicago. Rabbi Michael
Balinsky of the Chicago Board of Rabbis serves as guide.
This episode is
hosted by Cindy Sher.
Starting the week of Feb. 24, the program will be
available for viewing here.
"Sanctuary" is a joint production of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
Chicago and the Chicago Board of Rabbis, in cooperation with ABC7-Channel
