The Birth of Rabbinic Judaism
Tuesday, April 27 | 1:15 PM | On Zoom

Join the JCC Men’s Club for a talk by Gideon Amir. People ask me many times: “Why do we, Jews, have to follow Halakhah, the Rabbinic laws that are the basic of Judaism today? These are just human beings like me and you, so why are we obligated to follow their decrees and decisions and who gave them the authority to define Judaism for others?” These are not easy questions and there is no easy answer. In our session we will explore the process that led to the system by which Jews for generations used (and still use) to make decisions regarding questions that emerged with “modernity” but have never been discussed and decided upon before. Open to the community. – On Zoom
