When the Beggar Knocks?
Why do we feel scared to open our doors to those in need? What is behind our fears? What holds us back from truly opening our homes? Together we will read three short lesser-known stories from the Talmud about what may happen when we open the door, what happens when we don't and what our behavior can teach us about ourselves.
