On Sun, November 7, 2010, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, renowned Jewish teacher, philosopher, social critic and prolific author, will complete his 45 year long project of translation of and commentary on the Talmud. On this day, Jews and non-Jews from around the world will join in a Global Day of Jewish Learning and celebrate their shared identity, history and heritage—dozens and dozens of events at locations around the world, many connected to one another via satellite broadcast and webcast.

The 92nd Street Y is the flagship location for this once in a lifetime day. We will present a full day of panel discussions, broadcast via satellite throughout the United States and Canada, focusing on the themes of Leadership, Prayer, God and Love, with participants such as Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Rabbi Leon Morris, Rabbi Jennifer Krause, David Ellenson, Richard Joel, Arnie Eisen and many more.

Delving deeply into the themes that unite us all and showing how Jewish values can enrich and clarify our everyday lives, The Global Day of Jewish Learning will inform and inspire you. Please save the date.
