06/10/20: Disagreement and the Zoom Services Teshuvah

beginning at 1:00 p.m.

Join Rabbi Jeremy Markiz in this panel discussion with Rabbis Amy Levin and Aaron Alexander who recently voted on the Zoom Services Teshuvah. We will discuss why they disagreed, how we understand Jewish law, and most importantly, how we live with people with whom we disagree. 

Rabbis Levin and Alexander both serve on the Conservative Movement’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards (CJLS) and recently voted on the Zoom Services Teshuvah which provides guidance to the movement on how to run prayer services during the Coronavirus pandemic.
