In this Zoom-only book group we will meet over 3 sessions to discuss the UUA Common Read for 2024. Rabbi Ruttenberg examines ancient practices of Jewish philosopher Maimonides and applies it to systemic wrongs and issues like police brutality, harms against indigenous communities, the #MeToo movement along with those of interpersonal relationships. By examining current Western culture and how we fail to deliver justice we can learn how to make amends and repair relationships.
