Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively, The Beit Midrash Way

Monday, November 18, 2019 20 Cheshvan 5780

12:00 PM - 1:30 PMHar HaShem North Building in Room 4/5

One fact people across political divides today may still agree upon is that civil discourse between the political divides is turning less and less civil. Indeed, the sheer lack of desire to try to understand those with opposing political opinions (or political identities) and disagree constructively over critical questions is posing an existential threat to democracies around the world.

In response, Rabbi Greene will be teaching this course launched by Pardes: Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem to create a "beit midrash/study hall" environment where we will learn together in pairs, critically studying together mahloket, conflicting opinions, found on every page of classic Jewish texts.

Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively is generously supported by the Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah, the EGL Charitable Foundation and Ronald Guttman.

This program will meet on the following Monday afternoons from Noon-1:30pm,
11/18,  12/2,  12/9,  12/16

Participants are encouraged to bring their bagged lunch to enjoy while we are together!
