Jewish Texts & Philanthropy: Three Perspectives Part II with Dr. Elana Stein Hain

WHEN
Tuesday, January 20, 2015, 11:30am – 12:30pm EST

Join JFN for the second installment in our three-part webinar series that will take your philanthropic journey in some unexpected but thoroughly intriguing directions, as we look at Jewish texts to see how they inform our views on Jewish giving. We'll be joined by Dr. Elana Stein Hain, Director of Leadership Education at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, who will talk about "The Recipient of Charity: From Object to Subject." 

Much of the Jewish discourse about philanthropy centers around the donor – his/her obligations, prerogatives, needs to prioritize giving, etc. In this webinar, however, we will examine how Judaism conceives of the recipient of charity, not only in terms of rights and responsibilities, but more fundamentally in terms of his/her identity as an active subject.
