ADULT EDUCATION: Judaism 4.0: Where Torah, Midrash, Philosophy & Mysticism Meet

ADULT EDUCATION: Judaism 4.0: Where Torah, Midrash, Philosophy & Mysticism Meet

Tuesday, October 21 - Tuesday, December 16
Lawrence Family JCC
The Israelite religion found in the Torah is Judaism 1.0. After the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 CE, a new class of scholars, the Rabbis, led Judaism into its next phase, Judaism 2.0, through a prescient process of literary interpretation known as Midrash. In the Middle Ages, independent philosophical and mystical works were drafted to justify and promote the Rabbinic enterprise.

Two hundred years ago, the traditional Jewish communities of Europe began breaking down as a result of political emancipation and the Jewish enlightenment. The consequent emergence of the modern denominational landscape is Judaism 3.0. Today, we are participating in the birth of Judaism 4.0. What's to salvage, what's to jettison, and where are we headed are our animating questions?
