New York, NY – The Orthodox Union, the umbrella organization for American Orthodox Jewry, will present an unprecedented day of Torah, learning, inspiration and more.
The full-day program for both men and women will be held indoors at New York’s Citi Field, Sunday, January, 15 from 8:45 am – 6:15 pm. The event will feature representatives from all walks of Orthodox Jewish life for a meaningful conversation about about Halacha (Jewish Law), Tanach (The Jewish Bible), Hashkafa (Moral and Ethical Code) and Israel.
A key component of this effort is introducing dimensions of Torah study that speak to each individual. From kashrut, women and Torah, to conversion and the role Judaism may play in American politics today, these topics and many others will be part of the dialogue for people to engage in, learn about and question.
Among the speakers are Israeli Chief Rabbi David Lau, Rabbi Yonason Sacks, Mina Glick, Rabbi Shalom Rosner, Rabbi Menachem Genack and many more.
This program is a milestone for the OU, as the organization expands its focus to provide opportunities for Jews to explore the knowledge and inspiration behind their religious observance.
Since 1898, the OU has provided countless services: from facilitating halachic observance through its ubiquitous kashrus certification, to serving as the Orthodox community’s advocate on both federal and state government levels, from offering educational outreach for thousands to providing inclusion programming for the disabled.
Attendees are welcome to attend any part or all of the event. Admittance is $18, with free parking and kosher food available for purchase. The Day of Torah is being held indoors at Citi Field Convention Center, Queens, NY on Sunday January 15, 2017. Register at ou.org/citi
