What can loopholes in Rabbinic law teach us about holding multiple values and flexible thinking, at a time when our cultural discourse is often stuck in zero sum games and mutually exclusive positions?

Join Elana Stein Hain for a conversation with Rabbi David Wolkenfeld of Ohev Sholom Congregation about the theological, social, and legal logic behind the rabbinic phenomenon of legal loopholes, based on her new book, Circumventing the Law: Rabbinic Perspectives on Loopholes and Legal Integrity.

Program will be followed by a dessert reception. Limited copies of Elana’s book will be available for purchase and signing at the reception.
