Modern Orthodoxy and Jewish Pluralism:
Can We Learn From Each Other?

Can Orthodox Judaism learn anything from the other movements? Can non-Orthodox movements learn anything from Orthodoxy? In the 1800s in Europe new ways of practicing Judaism that radically shifted the paradigm away from classic approaches were born and since then Orthodox Jewish thinkers have grappled with how to adapt to this new reality. Come to this class and engage in some of these primary sources and discuss how they apply to our contemporary Jewish experience.

Rabbi Benjamin Greenberg of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah (YCT) will conduct the session. We are very excited to have Rav Greenberg as our standing YCT scholar for the monthly YCT-sponsored sessions. Rav Greenberg is a celebrated adult educator. Read more about him by clicking here.
