Conservative Judaism for Today and Tomorrow: Rethinking a Movement and Tradition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A personal and passionate exposition of the major challenges facing Judaism in our time, and how the distinctive way of learning and practicing Torah that we call "Conservative" can best address those challenges. How can Judaism reach more Jews in North America and elsewhere with rituals and wisdom that are both joyful and profound? How can age-old patterns of commitment be updated in a way that is both compelling and authentic? How can we speak about God to Jews who are not drawn to militant secularism on the one hand or fundamentalist Orthodoxy on the other? A candid look by the Chancellor of JTS at the mitzvot, ideas and institutions that animate and direct his life.
