Speaker series features Rabbi Irwin Kula

Rabbi Irwin Kula

Rabbi Irwin Kula will present “Beyond the Tribe: Judaism as Path of Human Flourishing” at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 11 at Congregation B’nai Amoona, 324 S. Mason Road. The event is planned by Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Sh’ma Listen! Speaker Series, B’nai Amoona and the Center for Jewish Learning. 

Kula, the co-president of CLAL, the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, will discuss how trends in the American religious landscape show that society is at the beginning of demographic, sociological and technological transformations that are dramatically altering the ways people create their identities, form communities and make meaning. He will look at the 

implications for religion in general and for our Judaism and Jewish community in particular.

A seventh generation rabbi, Kula has worked with leaders from the Dalai Lama to Queen Noor and with organizations, foundations and businesses in the United States and around the world to inspire people to live with greater passion, purpose, creativity and compassion. He is the co-founder and executive editor of The Wisdom Daily, a website for political, cultural and spiritual commentary and analysis.
