Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Filling Heads and Opening Hearts: Teaching a Judaism of Compassion

Shapiro picRabbi Rami Shapiro will discuss the new reality that our students and children live in the age of Google when information is readily available. They don’t need us as much to provide them with facts, but rather to help them make meaning of the information at their fingertips. He shares his vision of a Judaism based on Compassion and helps us better understand how we can become spiritual mentors to our students and our children.

This webinar addresses the following questions:

            • How do we teach finding meaning in prayer?
            • How do we find meaning in both the simple and the difficult passages in the Bible?
            • How can we create a compassionate classroom/or a compassionate home ?
            • How do we answer when questions of belief are raised?
