Before the Law: An Introduction to Jewish Responsa

November 4 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

What is Jewish law and how is it decided? Who gets to decide? In this six-week course, we will explore the halakhic process and how it has changed (and persisted) over the last two thousand years. We will focus, in particular, on contemporary Conservative responsa on a variety of issues, including kitniyot, kashrut, LGBT ordination, electronic usage on Shabbat, and minyanim during a pandemic. Join Rabbi Abi in discovering how the legal can become spiritual in our tradition.
