Participants will be introduced to Jewish texts and writings that will lay the foundation in Jewish thought for open discourse and lead to the group’s cooperation in creating a safe and trusting atmosphere where complex ideas can be discussed in an open and respectful manner, l’shem shamayim, in order to make the world a better place. In each of the sessions, we will be presenting challenging issues on race as “makhloket,” worthy of thoughtful and respectful dialogue and debate. Our objective is for participants to leave the course “confused at a higher level.”
