Since 2015, Café Avra Productions has been working with the Cardozo Lecture Series, filming inspiring and sometimes controversial lectures on a variety of topics in Jewish thought from Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo.
As written on the Cardozo Academy’s website, “Today, more than ever, Judaism should be an anchor and an inspiration. But excessive emphasis on dogma and ritual has led many to view Judaism as irrelevant and oppressive. The David Cardozo Academy was established to imbue Judaism with a new spirit – in fact, revitalizing Judaism’s original spirit as embodied by Abraham our Forefather – providing meaning and relevance to Judaism today.”
Prepare to be inspired.
“Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo has emerged as one of the most thoughtful voices in contemporary Orthodoxy. He is a man of deep faith and wide intellectual horizons, unafraid to confront the challenges of the age with the quiet confidence of one who is attuned to the music of eternity”
Rabbi Professor Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United
Hebrew Congregations of Britain and the Commonwealth
