Pluralism, Integrity and Community: A Lecture Series by Rabbi Ethan Tucker

Managing Observance in a Varied Jewish World. Over the course of three interactive discussions, we will be exploring questions around how we maintain our integrity around observance even as we build community with those who do not share all of our practices or interpretations of Torah. Each class will stand alone, but will be informed and enriched by the others. Mondays, November 10th, 17th and 24th @ Mechon Hadar, 190 Amsterdam Avenue.

Shamor and Zakhor: New paper from CJLV

The Center for Jewish Law and Values (CJLV) was launched last year in an effort to advance broad engagement with and learning around halakhah and the values that shape and drive it. Among the Center's many projects is the regular release of in-depth units that can stimulate discussion among scholars, laypeople, rabbis and educators on various topics in halakhah. We are pleased to present the first CJLV unit, titled, "Shamor and Zakhor: Competing Frames for Shabbat in the Torah and Today." Download all the material and learn more here.
