Debates—philosophical, spiritual, ethical, and cultural—are at the heart of Judaism and Jewish life. Are religion and reason compatible?  Can Jewish law change based on context?  How do we teach and talk about the Holocaust and the State of Israel? Should we prioritize Jewish causes or universal causes in our giving?  Is Jewish tradition intrinsically patriarchal and ableist?  Is our relationship with God defined by human obligation or divine compassion?
 
Each session includes a short video lecture by a faculty member of JTS along with classical and contemporary study texts.
