Great Jewish Debates

An hour of study and conversation

 

Argumentation and debate are the lifeblood of Jewish tradition. Abraham, the first Jew, challenged the decision to destroy the innocent along with the guilty in Sodom. Jacob successfully wrestled with a “Divine Being” and earned a new name. Moses, like the ancestors before him, frequently argued on behalf of the people and the sages of the rabbinic period recorded their debates as they wrote the Talmud. And today, Jews continue to call on the wisdom of their ancestors to wrestle with the social and political issues of our times.

 

Join Rabbi Adena Blum, Cantor Stuart Binder and Anne Berman-Waldorf, RJE, each month, we will examine a different discussion in history and apply it to life today. All programs will take place at Beth Chaim.
