Rabbi Weil will speak during the Friday night dinner on “Putting The Fun in Dysfunctional.” On Shabbat morning, he will address, “Can We Afford Tomorrow: The Challenges and Opportunities Facing the Future of Day School Education.” Rabbi Weil will speak Shabbat afternoon on “The Fascinating and Sublime World of the Rosh HaShana Machzor.” During seudah shlishit (the third meal on Shabbat), Rabbi Weil will discuss “What Does The Akeida Have To Do with Rosh Hashana?”

Rabbi Dovid Zirkind, Assistant Rabbi of The Jewish Center, stated, “The Jewish Center is thrilled to welcome back Rabbi Steven Weil to our Tochnit Elul program. It is the Rosh Hashana season when we think globally about our future as a community and as a people. A leader like Rabbi Weil, who has his finger on the pulse of the Jewish community, is the perfect person to address the issues on all of our minds. Ranging from the day school tuition crisis to Jewish marriage in the 21st century or the Iranian nuclear threat, Rabbi Weil brings a unique perspective to awaken us and challenge us to engage the year ahead.”
