Boundaries and Belonging
In our fragmented world, how can the synagogue be a nexus of community and connection? At a time of radical individuality, what is the value of communal life? How can we straddle the tension between nurturing a community of belonging with the need for boundaries? Who is an “insider” and who is an “outsider” in the modern American synagogue? What are the obstacles to the inclusive, pluralistic synagogue today?
Join the Shalom Hartman Institute for a community conversation that explores these questions that are vital to our Westchester synagogues with Yehuda Kurtzer, Mijal Bitton, Justin Pines, and Lauren Berkun.
