The Jewish People as a Tribal Family: an iEngage Conversation

The Jewish People as a Tribal Family: an iEngage Conversation
With Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Sunday, August 17 – Davening at 9:30am, Learning at 10:30am
Congregation Netivot Shalom

There is a widely-held belief that the Jewish People are more divided today than ever before – a claim that questions the sustainability of the shared enterprise of Jewish sovereignty. In this conversation with Rabbi Creditor, we will explore how the Jewish tradition conceptualized the Jewish People as a Tribal Family, it recognized that Jewish collective identity was always a divided and tribal one, requiring the balancing of collective consciousness with individual and tribal sensibilities.

This talk is part of an ongoing series sponsored by Congregation Netivot Shalom in partnership with the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America. It is free and open to the wider community. Donations of $5 are optional and support ongoing educational opportunities at Netivot Shalom.
