God During Times of Crisis

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 7 Cheshvan 5782

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


We will explore questions related to what a relationship in God and a life of faith entails: Where does faith come from? What are the models in Jewish tradition for a complex relationship with God which includes reverence and joy, but also anger and argument? Where does doubt fit into a life of faith? Where do Jews who do not believe fit in?

Taught by Rabbi Brian Strauss

Foundations for a Thoughtful Judaism is a curricular project from the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem which offers a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to philosophical ideas in Jewish peoplehood, practice, faith, and ethics. Its content is based on Hartman teaching from the last four decades. The curriculum grew out of an interest in sharing ideas that have been taught at the Institute to rabbis for decades with people who are new to Jewish tradition, and is designed to allow even beginners to have access to deep Jewish thought. This includes interfaith relationships, people exploring their own Judaism for the first time, and those who are working towards conversion. The curriculum is not a how-to Judaism 101 course, but instead serves as a complement for those who wish to grapple with philosophical questions at the heart of Jewish tradition.
