Class with Rabbi Rein - Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively
Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively
Topic for March 28: When is fearing minorities xenophobia, and when is it a question of national security?
Many of the most heated ideological and political conflicts in the world today arise from the contradictory ways various groups interpret their reality and texts. From religious and historical texts to the texts of social and mainstream media, conflicting groups find themselves in ever deepening narrative divides, with little to no ability to understand and engage in meaningful and constructive disagreement.
Each class revolves around a conceptual question which is currently under ideological and political debate in Israel and the United States. The end goal is to increase our curiosity, motivation and ability to understand competing ideological and political narratives today.
7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
