On Tisha B’Av, Emanuel Synagogue and Kehilat Nitzan, Melbourne will present an online Eicha reading followed by a Zoom lecture by world-renowned Israeli Futurist, Prof. David Passig of Bar-Ilan University.

Prof David Passig

Prof. Passig predicted many major world events including the 9/11 terror attack and the current pandemic.

Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of both Temples, a profound event in the history of the Jewish people.

This occurrence had lasting ramifications that still echo to this day, completely and irrevocably altering the path of Judaism. Are we today at the precipice of such a radical change?

The Zoom event starts with the reading of the Book of Eicha (Lamentations) following with a glimpse into our potential future of Judaism with guest speaker, renowned futurist, Prof David Passig.

For a century most of the scholars have failed miserably to predict the future of Israel. This lecture explains why and suggests a valid methodology with which one can predict with higher reliability the future of Israel and world Jewry. Past tragedies have led to revolutions in Judaism. Are we at such a critical juncture now?

Prof. David Passig is a futurist, lecturer, consultant and best-selling author who specializes in technological, social and educational futures. He is an Associate Professor at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat-Gan, Israel. 

Prof. Passig has consulted for many corporations as well as public and private sector institutes. He is the chair in one of his own FutureCode Ltd., which develops and employs tool kits of computerized Futures methods in decision-making processes. He is the Co-founder and chief evangelist of Thinkz LTD, that develops Social IoT platforms and has served as the chief advisor to the Commissioner for Future Generations in the Israeli Knesset.

Prof. Passig’s bestseller books are The Future Code and 2048. Each has received Israel’s coveted Gold Book Award. His most recent book, Forcognito – The Future Mind, was published in Jan. 2013 and was at the top of the Israeli bestseller list. His upcoming book is titled: The Future of Judaism. Prof. Passig holds a PhD degree in Future Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

The service will start at 6:00pm on Wednesday July 29 followed by the address by Professor Passig at 7:00pm.
