Thursday 4th May: Judaism 101, I’d like to have an argument please!

Judaism 101’s Spring Term has now finished.  Our summer term resumes on Thursday 4th May with Gabriel Webber, who has just been accepted into the Leo Baeck Rabbinic Training College.  The title for that session will be “I’d like to have an argument please: jus in disputatio and Jewish ethics of debate”.  Gabriel explains:

“In many ways the Talmud is just one big argument.  But it’s littered with picturesque rules of civilised debate: how can Jews disagree with each other respectfully?”

Sessions are open to everyone – whether completely new to Judaism, exploring, or ready for a refresher – and each session of Judaism 101 stands alone, so you can come to a whole term or a single session, dependent on the topic.

Together they will help you to build a strong foundation of Jewish knowledge and experience, based around study of sacred texts, holidays and Jewish theology.

Attendance is free, but those that can are encouraged to make a small donation (£5? a session or £25 for the term) in accordance with their ability to pay.   Donations can be made on the night or direct to the York Liberal Jewish Community account (email info@jewsinyork.org.uk for account details.)
Venue:  Room A/005, Derwent College, University of York, 7pm-9pm
