Registration open.

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?

This comprehensive, text-based exploration of how these debates have been manifested over the course of Jewish history, and invites learners to examine the conflicts themselves, uncover the essential questions that underlie them, and to build a more inclusive view of the Jewish past, present, and future.

This insightful  course uses curriculum from

Jewish Theological Seminary’s Community Learning series and is facilitated by Kobi Chumash.
