Global Day of Jewish Learning: Post Event Survey of Community Organizers

By Ezra Kopelowitz

Global Day of Jewish Learning, January 26, 2011


The Global Day of Jewish Learning was held on November 7, 2010 to mark the completion by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, renowned Jewish teacher and philosopher, of his 45 year long project of translating the Talmud. The goals of the Global Day were to unify the Jewish people around a shared culture of learning sacred texts, and to raise awareness of the Talmud through Rabbi Steinsaltz’s historic achievement. 408 communities in 48 countries participated in the Global Day. This evaluation found that the Global Day filled a unique niche, providing a platform that promotes global Jewish belonging and peoplehood through a focus on Jewish learning and Talmud. Participating communities report the Global Day inspired their lay and professional leadership both by exposing them to other learners worldwide and by providing resources and support that promoted Jewish learning. Respondents also report the Global Day was a unique forum that encouraged local collaboration across organizations and denominations.
