What Jewish Tradition Teaches Us About the Importance of Dissent, presented by
Rabbi Cookie Lea Olshein
Thursday, November 12
7:00-8:00pm

Beginning with the book of Genesis, Jewish tradition is filled with stories of dissent. This
tradition continues through the Talmud and has most recently been exemplified by the words
spoken by RBG in “I dissent.” Join us for this ancient and timely discussion about our obligation
to speak up, even when we might not “win the argument.”
