Rabbi Melissa Weintraub, Co-Executive Director of Resetting the Table, joins Jay’s 4 Questions to discuss the importance of listening, the power of our voices, and the need to communicate across different opinions and perspectives. She explains how religion doesn’t give us a political roadmap, but Judaism has quite a lot to say about how we live on earth. She says, “People in different worlds simply need each other to be able to amass the wisdom, intelligence, and creativity we need to solve problems.” For these wise words and more, tune in to this week’s podcast!
Resetting the Table is dedicated to building meaningful dialogue and deliberation across political divides surrounding Israel and other charged issues. The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles is partnering with Resetting the Table in an effort to bring productive discussion to communities throughout Jewish L.A. Over the next three years, together we will offer three rounds of intensive facilitation training and multiply a range of dialogues amongst L.A.-area Jewish institutions. This partnership is supported by a Cutting Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.
