Adult Education 2018-2019 -- Living Judaism

Judaism is in constant evolution.  The Jewish lives that we lead today are different from those led by our ancestors, each generation is differnet from the one that came before it.  Changes in Jewish law and practice can be seen in the Torah itself, and the development has continued ever since.

In the modern era, the Conservative Movement has adopted a particular approach to Jewish practice, attempting to strike a balance between traditional approaches and modern sensibilities.  We will look at some of the teshuvot (Jewish legal opinions) that make the Conservative Movement stand out from other streams of Judaism in modern times and attempt to understand the process and values that led to particular positions.  This will lead us to examine texts from throughout Jewish history, and discussions of values and ethics.
