New Solutions, Old Problems: My Talk on Technology at American Jewish University

I had a delightful time speaking to rabbinical and education students at American Jewish University today about In Real Life. The discussion was properly rabbinic, cutting quickly to the real conversation about values that I want to have underneath the one about the definition and workings of technology.

There‘s a tiny bit of talk that‘s specific to the audience of future Jewish leaders and educators, but I think it‘s widely applicable. The one reference worth linking for clarification is to the 1951 book, The Sabbath, by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, which is short and beautiful and accessible to anyone interested in the concept of a sacred day of rest, Jewish or otherwise.

Hope you enjoy it! And if you‘d like me to come speak to your group, please get in touch.
