There has never been an age in Jewish history without internal Jewish controversies. We are, after all, the “people of the argument”. In this course, Rabbi Schiff will lead robust discussions about significant Jewish controversies that echo across the contemporary Jewish landscape, including Zoom prayer, intermarried rabbis, the death penalty for acts of terror against Israelis … and much more. Join Rabbi Schiff in this “up to the moment” learning experience.
