Uniformity and Diversity: Left-Handedness and Halakhah

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

Communities must constantly balance a sense of uniformity and common purpose with the fact that all communities are made up of diverse individuals. When must individuals bend to the dominant norm and when do we create space for some people to do things differently? We will explore this question through the prism of handedness as we examine a number of places in halakhic literature where lefties and righties are (and are not) treated differently.
