Robert N. Schlesinger Memorial Residency

Join us for Shabbat service followed by a lecture given by Rabbi Or Rose entitled, "
Guest & Host: American Judaism & Religious Pluralism".    

What does it mean to live as a Jew in the most religiously diverse society--the United States--in the world? How does this social reality contribute to our understanding of God, the religious “other,” and ourselves? Can we build our lives in such a way that we honor both the universal and particular dimensions of our identities as Jews? Join us as we explore this complex and timely issue, weaving together insights from theological, historical, and sociological sources.
