NEW YEAR, NEW RABBIS, NEW IDEAS
Rabbis who are new to the greater Boston Jewish community or have new roles here, have been invited to teach about their passions! Their sessions are outstanding – innovative, provocative, fresh, and fascinating! The full list of sessions is below.
Here is a taste:
Navigating Divisive Jewish Communities
We live in times during which the boundaries of communities are constantly being navigated and contested. We see these tensions everywhere from college campuses to social movements to synagogue communities. What orientations toward Jewish life, Israel and American politics are considered within or outside the bounds? When we think about our Jewish community, what is the value of having communal boundaries? What constitutes “membership” in any given Jewish community and what makes staying “in” compelling despite differences of opinion, perspective, or identity? What happens when disagreement threatens to destroy a community? How does a community maintain diversity even as it aspires to some shared values and norms and are there limits to this diversity?
