Beyond Dispute: Debates that Shape Jewish Life

Tuesday, 6 July, 2021 26 Tammuz 5781

8:15 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

Beyond Dispute: Debates that Shape Jewish Life is a new curriculum from JTS - join us for this taster session: Do we need to mean what we pray? Sacrifices in the Siddur with Student Rabbi Anthony Lazarus Magrill. We plan to offer the full course in the next academic year.

Debates – philosophical, spiritual, ethical, and cultural – are at the heart of Judaism and Jewish life.
• Are religion and reason compatible?
• Can Jewish law change based on context?
• How do we teach and talk about the Holocaust and the State of Israel?
• Should we prioritize Jewish causes or universal causes in our giving?
• Is Jewish tradition intrinsically patriarchal and ableist?
• Is our relationship with God defined by human obligation or divine compassion?
