This talk was scheduled before the horrendous shooting and murder of 11 people that took place Saturday, October 27 at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg, PA's Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz explores some of the most challenging and controversial issues facing the contemporary Jewish condition. With subjects ranging across the spectrum of social and cultural flashpoints, Rabbi Yanklowitz shows that Spiritual Courage is not just an axiom, but an ardent call to social action.

In light of the hate killings at the Tree of Life Synagogue, Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz’s thoughts on Spiritual Courage are as important as ever for all peoples of good will to hear, reflect upon, and be inspired to take action. Included in the 90 minute presentation will be open dialog and questions with Rabbi Schmuly. We encourage you to attend this important inspirational talk and shared insightful conversation on living Spiritual Courage.
