On Sunday, December 5th – 28th Kislev, Torah Café will be airing its 6th webcast, entitled “Conversations: Free to be Jewish.”
The webcast will be moderated by Lubavitch.com editor Baila Olidort, and will feature remarks from Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, Malcolm Hoenlein of Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet of United Synagogue of Mill Hill in London.
Chanukah celebrates the miracle of Jewish endurance. What started as the battle cry of a small band of brothers has since captured the imagination of billions: the simple idea that one should be free to practice their faith without fear of persecution. The message of the Maccabees resonates until today wherever freedom is treasured.
Greetings will also be heard from Rabbi Yehoshua Laufer, Director of Chabad of Rhode Island and Rabbi Mordechai Eskovitz of the Touro Synangogue in in Newport, RI, the oldest standing synagogue in the U.S.
The remarks and greetings will focus on the theme of Chanukah and how it echoes our great American tradition of freedom.
