Day of Learning
We Can Argue, But Not Like That… Right? Exploring Sacred Arguing and Sacred Boundaries
A Keynote address by Rabbi Maurice Harris
Are there limits to what we should permit in community discussions? What’s the difference between inclusion and anarchy and needless discord? When does a community have the right, even duty, to exclude its members from discussion/debate? What do the rabbis say – and how is what they say instructive for today’s troubled times? The keynote will be followed by informative breakout sessions. Details to follow.
At this year’s annual celebration, we will honor community members who help their congregations and havurot in the eager, willing spirit of Hineni—“Here I am.”
Our 2017 Honorees:
- Adat Shalom: Hannah Lipman and Phil Zipin
- Beit Tikvah: Rabbi Larry Pinsker
- Columbia Jewish Congregation: Sheldon Gnatt and David Glaser
- Kol Ami: Ervin Walter
- Kol HaLev: Rabbi Steve Silvern
- Mishkan Torah: Marilyn Langfeld
