“You should not do unto others as you would not want them to do to you.” - Hillel

Did you know that Hillel taught that the entire Torah could be summarized while standing on one foot with just the above phrase?

That episode is part of a longer passage that teaches about anger, idolatry and humility, discipline, learning, knowledge, and the experience of the Divine.

Join us for a meaningful and informative Shabbaton to discuss this passage together with other teachings of the Sages and discover what Hillel has to teach us today about these abiding themes of anger, learning and spirituality.
