Debates—philosophical, spiritual, ethical, and cultural—are at the heart of Judaism and Jewish life. Are religion and reason compatible? Can Jewish law change based on context? How do we teach and talk about the Holocaust and the State of Israel? Should we prioritize Jewish causes or universal causes in our giving? Is Jewish tradition intrinsically patriarchal and ableist? Is our relationship with God defined by human obligation or divine compassion? Beyond Dispute is a comprehensive curriculum from JTS that offers a substantive, text-based exploration of how these debates have manifested over the course of Jewish history, and how they continue to resonate for contemporary Jewish life. The course enables teachers and students alike to go beyond the conflicts themselves to uncover the essential questions that underlie them, and to build a more inclusive view of the Jewish past, present, and future. All classes will be taught by Rabbis Fel and Zerin, and held via Zoom; links will be sent to those who register at www.teprov.org/form/summer2020
