A Class on Reform Jewish Responsa with Educator Cyndee Levy
 

Participants will engage in impactful learning through the lens of Reform responsa and enjoy lively discussions focused on the process of engagement with Jewish law, values, and practice. The text is compelling and made accessible through its combination of “rigorous scholarship and masterful storytelling.”

“The responsa literature, in which rabbis answer questions about halachah (Jewish law), is a vast treasury reaching back nearly fifteen centuries; Reform rabbis have been writing responsa since the 1800s. In Reading Reform Responsa, Rabbi Mark Washofsky, PhD, presents a deep dive into this literature, boldly arguing that Reform Judaism is indeed a movement fundamentally based on halachah.”
