The Torah of Conservative Judaism

Part of ScholarStream, a partnership of the Conservative Movement

Tuesday, December 21, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET 

From its inception, Conservative Judaism has stood for a particular way of approaching, studying, and even defining Torah. The energizing encounter between the academic and the religiously committed has characterized The Jewish Theological Seminary, the Conservative Movement’s flagship institution, since its founding. In this session, we will consider the notable contributions to this special culture of Torah made by some of the significant figures in the history of JTS and our Movement. 

With Rabbi Gordon Tucker, Vice Chancellor for Religious Life and Engagement, JTS 

This session is the third in a series of three lectures on The Roots of Conservative Judaism: Understanding how Conservative Judaism developed helps us form our own theology and practice. As a movement guided by Torah and modern interpretation, we embrace diversity as we gather in holy community. 

Individuals can sign up at a cost of $25 for the series, or for free with a code from a sponsoring congregation. 


From October through May this year, JTS is partnering with other Conservative Movement seminaries and institutions to offer eight lecture series featuring outstanding scholars and teachers from across the movement. Synagogues are invited to become ScholarStream co-sponsors so that their members may enjoy all of the lectures at no charge.
