Sh’eilot Ut’shuvot: Reform Responsa for the 21st Century

To its detractors, the Progressive movement is anti-halachic and its’ decisions in violation of traditional Jewish norms and practices. This course will provide a countervailing view. Utilising recent Reform Responsa (a genre of rabbinic writing in which petitioners ask questions to their rabbis about Jewish conduct) and based on the work of Professor Rabbi Mark Washofsky, we will discover the progressive “take” on questions related to Worship, Shabbat And Festival Observance, Ritual Observance, Personal Status, Marriage and Family Life and the Life of the Community.

Provocative, insightful and surprising
