Love Your Neighbor

Melissa Gerr with Jamyla Krempel

Does the commandment ‘Love Your Neighbor’ ask that we show the same level of kindness and consideration to a stranger ... as we do to a friend? Does it implore action … or intention? … does that matter? We ask philosopher and theologian Rabbi Shai Held his thoughts about the weighty mandate … Then, we ask some of our Baltimore neighbors what they think it means to love your neighbor.

Rabbi Shai Held is scholar-in-residence at Beth Am Synagogue Fri-Sun Nov. 15-17. All events are open to the public, for more information visit this link.
