Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig were two of the most influential late 19th–early 20th century philosophers and theologians. Both were German Jews—Buber was born in Vienna (1878) and died in Israel (1965); Rosenzweig was born and died in Germany (1886–1929)—but they came from very different backgrounds and followed singular and independent paths as they developed their respective approaches to religion and the supreme being and giving meaning to an individiual’s life. Different as they were, they managed to become colleagues late in their lives. Rabbi David Nesson, spiritual leader of Morristown Jewish Center–Beit Yisrael (MJCBY) for over 30 years, will discuss these two unparalleled thinkers in a three-part Our Jewish World Clergy Learning Series on Thursdays, May 5, 12 and 19, at 1 p.m. Rabbi Nesson’s series, coordinated by Our Jewish World co-chairs Melanie Levitan and Ilene Dorf Manahan, will be presented over Zoom.
Cantor Erica (aka Riki) Lippitz, cantor emerita of Oheb Shalom Congregation in South Orange, is known for her devotion to creating caring communities with spirited music at their core. Now, as an extension of her spiritual activities, she teaches the basic elements of ”Music and Memory” to interested adults in communities everywhere. The goal of Music and Memory is to make the therapeutic use of “personalized music” a standard of care throughout the health care industry. On Thursday, March 31, at 1 p.m., Cantor Lippitz will give an hour-long presentation and conversation via Zoom as part of the NCJW, West Morris Clergy Series. Her topic will be “Music to Heal in the Coda of Life”—a coda being a conclusion to a piece of music.
Did you know that Judaism has something to say about anger, compassion, patience, impatience and love?!
