Beyond Dispute: Debates That Shape Jewish Life

7:30PM - 9:00PM  

Congregation Agudat Achim 2117 Union Street
Schenectady, NY

Adult Education Class with Rabbi Spitzer

Debates—philosophical, spiritual, ethical, and cultural—are at the heart of Judaism and Jewish life.

Are religion and reason compatible? Can Jewish law change based on context?

How do we teach and talk about the Holocaust and the State of Israel?

Should we prioritize Jewish causes or universal causes in our giving?

Is Jewish tradition intrinsically patriarchal and ableist?

Is our relationship with God defined by human obligation or divine compassion?

Come join us as we explore these issues
