Valley Beit Midrash welcomes Rabbi Irving ‘Yitz’ Greenberg

In only a few short weeks, Valley Beit Midrash will open our Jaburg-Wilk Learning Series 2017-2018 with Rabbi Irving “Yitz” Greenberg, a true Torah giant, presenting what will be a fascinating lecture entitled “The 10 Jewish Moral Imperatives: A Jewish Response to a Fractured Society.” While I am excited for this event for many reasons — to share Jewish wisdom with the Greater Phoenix Jewish community and to get back into the swing of regular VBM events — I’m most exhilarated for yet another chance to learn with my esteemed teacher and mentor Rav Yitz!

For those who may not know, Rabbi Dr. Irving “Yitz” Greenberg is undoubtedly one of the most significant Jewish voices of our generation. His years of service in the rabbinate — as organizational leader, author, lecturer, Holocaust theologian and long-time activist for a multitude of spiritual causes — has led to the perpetuation of Jewish values across Jewish life and the spectrum of other religious traditions and cultures.
