RSVP below and join JVP Philly for a night of traditional and political Jewish learning in honor of Shavuot, the holiday for celebrating the receiving of Torah.
What does Jewish tradition say about learning from sages and leaders who are considered "over the line" by the rest of the Jewish community? We'll explore what the ancient rabbis believed about so called "dangerous Torah" and heretical ideas within their communities and in the mouths of their teachers. We'll discuss how these dynamics might play out in our own era. Who is a heretic and what is the Torah they have to offer? Hope to see you there!
