Rosh Hashana in an Age of Post-Truth Politics

A Slifka Online Salon taught by Rabbi Jason Rubenstein, Howard M. Holtzmann Jewish Chaplain at Yale
We are losing our ability to speak with one another, as language becomes frayed and antagonistic. The restoration of our capacity to know and be known through communication is nothing less than one of the purposes of Rosh Hashana. By putting this idea, as formulated by the delightful 20th-century Rabbi Isaac Hutner, in dialogue with Harry Frankfurt’s famous essay ‘on BS’, we will bridge Jewish and American time and values.
