Detailed program information

 * Sample Workshop Offerings:

"Kids Today!" by Rabbi Laurence W. Groffman (Temple Sholom)
In Jewish tradition, parents are responsible for passing Judaism on to the next generation. But what happens when it is our children who inspire us to continue our tradition? An exploration of a Talmudic text on this topic.

"Restoring the Missing Letter in the Ten Commandments" by Rabbi David Greenstein (Shomrei Emunah)
We received the Ten Commandments not once but twice, with some differences between the two versions. Our tradition tells a fascinating story about one difference - a missing letter in the first version and a dramatic struggle to restore it for the second. This mythic story has much to offer in thinking about how the Torah fits into our lives.


"Can you legislate integrity?" by Rabbi Marc Katz (Ner Tamid)
As hard as it may be to believe you can stay within the bounds of Jewish law and still make ethically questionable decisions. Just because something is legal doesn't make it right. But Judaism has an answer for that - a set of precepts that force you to go above the law and seek good. Come learn about them and how you might use them in your own ethical decision making.
