The Rabbis’ Algebra: Everyone has heard ‘two Jews, three opinions’. There is actually a mathematical basis for this: Each one has their own opinion, and together another one emerges. And that means three rabbis have seven opinions – each has one, each pairing of two has another one, and the whole group generates another. So what happens when you put seven rabbis in a room and ask them poignant questions about how Judaism mixes (or doesn’t mix) with other faiths and practices? You do the math.
Or you could come and hear it first hand. This Thursday the 21st of January at 7:30 PM, the community has a rare opportunity to hear a genuine impromptu dialogue between many of Boulder’s rabbis on this very interesting and personal topic. Many of the rabbis have been involved with one or another practice or spirituality along the way – how do they incorporate that time of their lives into their practice today? How does it make its way into the services they provide? What are they reading when they are not reading ‘Jewish’? And how do they feel about each other’s answers?
This event is sponsored by SoulFood, which is a place where interesting dialogue about Jewish identity is always happening, and by Haver, Boulder’s Rabbinic Fellowship, a non-stop dialogue among Boulder’s rabbis. This dialogue promises to be informative and exciting. But spots are limited, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. The panel will be held at the City Club, which is in the Highland Building at 885 Arapahoe. The event is free, and light refreshments will be served.
