HUC-JIR is proud to announce that it has become a supporting partner of the Global Day of Jewish Learning, November 7, 2010 (www.1people1day.org).
On that day, Jewish communities around the world – from Washington, DC to Paris and from Moscow to Buenos Aires – will be uniting in the study of Jewish texts. The event marks the completion of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s historic Talmud commentary. On that day, Rabbi Steinsaltz will symbolically write the final lines of his monumental work, bringing to a close a 45-year project that comprises 45 volumes.
To date, over 40 communities across North America are already engaged in Global Day activities. The Global Day of Jewish Learning is a once-in-a-lifetime event; HUC-JIR is proud to be participating in it.
