Virtual Rabbinic Torah Seminar

As we navigate uncertain times, our 2021 Virtual Rabbinic Torah Seminar explored what the Jewish future could look like.

Hundreds of rabbis from across North America and around the world connected across difference for our 2021 Virtual Rabbinic Torah Seminar (RTS)

Together they immersed in meaningful Torah study investigating a Torah of Possibility for an Uncertain Future and exploring the big covenantal and aspirational questions facing us in this moment, including: What could a Jewish conversation about Zionism and antisemitism become? What meanings can we develop for hope, for power, and for community?
