9:30-10:35 am with Rabbi David
The Choosing People: Community and Meaning in an Age of Individualism
October 11, 2023 - April 17, 2024
Together we will investigate our moral, spiritual, and communal choices as modern Jews and challenge ourselves to reflect on classical categories of Jewish meaning, belonging, and obligation with new eyes. Join us for our pluralistic, intellectually rigorous, and spiritually renewing year of study as we explore Jewish classical texts and their relevance to our lives.Today, people are certain about so many things. Impressions are formed and often affirmed, in an instant. What can we learn from the rabbis about the value of uncertainty and how to negotiate it thoughtfully? How does rabbinic thought manage uncertainty when it arises from competing claims from people themselves? We will explore rabbinic sources dealing with conflicting claims and possible solutions.
