Sichot Beyn Achayot – Conversations Between Sisters – Session 1: Helping the Stranger: Mitzvot, Motivations and Methods

Sunday, October 22, 2023    
1:00 pm EDT - 2:30 pm EDT

שׂיחוֹת בֵּין אָחַיוֹת, Sichot beyn Achayot means “Conversations between Sisters.” This program is designed to foster a deeper mutual understanding between the members of WLCJ in North America, the Masorti women from Israel and Masorti Olami, and our communities around the world. It is designed to address the question, “How are we the same, and how are we different?” The theme of this year’s program is כּל יִשְׂרָאֵל עָרֵבִים זֶה בַּזֶה, Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh Ba’Zeh, All of Israel is Responsible for One Another [BT Shevuot 39a]. The three sessions will address this question by each concentrating on one specific issue that is both relevant and timely to us all and will include presentations from speakers from both sides of the Atlantic. Each workshop will also be followed by a Q&A session in which all attendees will be encouraged to participate.

Title: Helping the Stranger: Mitzvot, Motivations and Methods
The commandment to love the stranger appears more times in the Torah than any other mitzvah — 36 times. On this week when we read Parashat Lekh-Lekha, we will learn of the many ways in which this mitzvah is observed in today’s world, when so many are leaving their birthplace, in search of a better life for themselves and their families.
