LIKE IT—OR NOT? THE EXISTENTIAL TENSION OF SIMILARITY AND DIFFERENCE with Rabbi Jan Uhrbach
Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”
April 26, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET
This session is generously sponsored by Mimi Alperin in honor of JTS faculty who have generously provided exciting learning opportunities for the Jewish community during the pandemic.
Foundational Jewish texts point to a series of irresolvable dilemmas or polarities at the heart of the human condition, among them the way in which each of us is both like, and unlike, all others. How does this fundamental tension manifest in our personal relationships, our collective challenges, and our religious expressions, and what wisdom does our tradition offer to help us manage, and even grow from, our differences?
Rabbi Jan Uhrbach is the Director of the Block / Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts.
