Winter 2020

Thursday 19th December:  Yiddish language and culture (a sneak peak review).

What is Yiddish?

Thursday 16th January: Halakha, friend or foe?

What do we do as liberal jews with Jewish ‘legal’ texts?  How do we approach their contradictions both internal and with our modern values?

Thursday 13th February:  Anti-semitism or anti-zionism?

At the heart of much of the currently political debate around anti-semitism.  What is the difference?  Is it possible to be anti-zionist but not anti-semitic?  What areas of disagreement are legitimate and where do they lapse in racism?

All sessions will be led by student Rabbi, Peter Luijendijk and begin at 7pm.

Venue:  The Garden Room, Friargate Meeting House
