Audience Agreement of Conduct
דרך ארץ קדמה לתורה
Respectful speaking and listening are essential, even though there may be widely differing opinions present. This is rooted in a core Jewish value: Derech eretz kadmah l’Torah, proper conduct precedes the Torah. We call upon those attending CRC programming to engage in mutual respect, even in the midst of a heated argument.
Verbal and/or nonverbal attempts to interrupt or disturb the program, as well as uncivil behavior directed toward speakers, other members of the audience, and/or program organizers may result in removal from the premises and affect participation in future CRC programs.
