This Sunday morning, after minyan: "Dynamic Judaism IV: Why not Oysters?"

Dynamic Judaism: Why not Oysters?
Sunday Morning, April 19th, after morning minyan (which begins at 9:30)

Rabbi Neil Gillman, scholar in residence for the upcoming Netivot Shalom Memorial Day retreat, has asked: "Why do some laws change and others not change?  Why can we drive to shul on Shabbat but not a museum?  Why are all cheeses kosher but oysters still treif?  Why change some portions of our liturgy but not others?"  This installation of the Dynamic Judaism series with Rabbi Creditor will address these questions through an exploration of the Conservative Jewish approach to tradition in the face of new challenges.
