By Reporter staff

A Global Day of Jewish Learning event will be held on Sunday, November 5, from 10 am-noon, at the Jewish Community Center, 500 Clubhouse Rd., Vestal. The event is co-sponsored by Beth David Synagogue, the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton, Temple Concord and Temple Israel. A light breakfast will be served. A suggested donation from $5-20 is requested. To register for the event, click here. Registration is due by Thursday, November 2. 

The Global Day of Jewish Learning has been held annually since 2010 and was inspired by the late Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz. The event is held in groups and congregations across the country and powered by Limmud, which supports the creation of “a diverse, cohesive Jewish community rooted in the importance of celebrating and learning from differences.” (More information can be found on Limmud.) 

“The Global Day of Jewish Learning brings the community together to explore basic Jewish principles,” said Shelley Hubal, executive director of the Federation. “That fulfills the mission of the Federation, and I am excited that we can bring this opportunity to Binghamton. This year’s theme is ‘The Values we Hold Dear: A Roadmap for Inspired Jewish Living.’ I hope everyone will come out to learn and shmooze.”
