Explore some of today's biggest and most urgent Jewish conversations about community, theology, and justice. Together we'll study selected Jewish thinkers and writings from 1980 to 2015 and take our places in the ongoing work of building up the Jewish people!
Our discussion will be based on selected readings from the book The New Jewish Canon edited by Yehuda Kurtzer and Claire E. Sufrin.
