Tuesday, February 7, 2023 | 7:00-8:15 PM

Speaker: Rabbi Jason Rosenberg

Topic & Description: “Radical Judaism – A Mystical Theology for Rationalists.” Many people believe that rational, scientific thinking are at odds with religious faith. And, all the more so, they think that mysticism is the least rational of all. But, there is a modern theology usually referred to as Neo-mysticism, which is grounded in Jewish tradition, but fully compatible with rational thought. Come and learn a bit about this new way of being devout!
