The Paradox of Unity: Differently the Same
Rabbi Yitzchak Greenblatt, Phd
The tension between individuality and conformity is always present. What is the Jewish approach to this issue? Can it be resolved? Or do we just need to learn to live with it?
Are you Jewish? How do you know?
Rabbi Peretz Goldstein
Am I a real Jew if I only come to Shul twice a year? What if I hold the bacon at McDonalds? Many find these practices to be irrelevant, yet feel a strong traditional connection to them. What is the minimum amount of religious involvement to be Jewish? Is there one? Join our open and honest discussion as we try to reconcile these issues and more in the quest to understand what it means to be Jewish.
