from 7:00 - 8:10 pm
Loosely based on the ground-breaking work of Rabbi Donnielle Hartman in his book Putting God Second, the course will delve into the sources that show religion's autoimmune disease. Judaism is a religion which stresses human dignity and justice, but from time to time, as in many religions, God intoxication and God manipulation get in the way and distort its basic core of humaneness. This course is an effort to discuss and grapple with this in the Judaic sources and to understand Conservative Judaism in this light.
All source material will be supplied
