The AIDS crisis is not over and neither is the obligation of Jews to address it. Scott offers a religious perspective on the subject of HIV/AIDS in light of Jewish imperatives such as B’kur Cholim and P’kuach Nefesh. This program provides a religious and cultural perspective on the AIDS crisis by incorporating formal Jewish text and current Jewish philosophy/poetry in order to illustrate how Jewish students should not only act as agents for change in our community but, more importantly, value their own lives in the face of life-challenging situations.

Potential Audiences: This workshop is a winner with Hebrew schools, Jewish Day Schools, rabbinical students, Jewish youth groups, Hillel students and the professionals who work with these emerging adults.
