New Jewish Thinking: A Conversation
How do we mediate personal choice and the demands of traditional halacha? Can everyday life in the twenty-first century offer different ways of understanding classic Jewish theology? Two recent books offer highly original responses to these questions. Leon Dow’s The Going: A Meditation on Jewish Law speaks both personally and theologically regarding the demands of traditional Jewish life and the need to remain true to one’s own voice. New to motherhood, Mara Benjamin writes in The Obligated Self: Maternal Subjectivity and Jewish Thought, about the ways in which her relationship to her children has opened up new perspectives and theological understandings. In our sessions, we’ll do a close reading of both books and look at our own relationship to the provocative ideas they offer.
This five-week course is limited to ten participants and will take place as a Zoom meeting on Wednesdays, 11:30-12:30, beginning November 6.
