Help Me Out With a Thing!
So Limmud NY 2012 is coming up in January and as the Executive Director of the aforementioned organization, I could not possibly more excited. I am excited for a million reasons, among the biggest of which is the fact that my father, one Rabbi Carl Wolkin, will be attending Limmud for the first time ever.
This is sort of a thing, my friends.
And another thing! We will be co-teaching a session. This session will be called “I Love You, but You’re Wrong About Everything”. It’s basically going to be a father/son exploration of the fact that while both of us are deeply tired to Jewish life, have strong identities and a commitment to the community on a professional/personal level, we don’t have very much in common in terms of how we think of Judaism itself.
We thought about coming up with the content of the conversation on our own, but then we decided that it would be far more fun to crowdsource it. So we’re putting it to you, universe: what are the Jewish questions, ideas, conflicts and more that you would want to see my discuss with Carl, whether you’re coming to Limmud or not?
If you’ve got something, just throw it into the comments section and we’ll think it through!
(Note: some of you may think it would be funny to write something cute and snarky in the comments, something that you know we would never think about discussing. Please save everyone a couple minutes and refrain, since I’ll just remove it in moderation.)
