All Israel’s Children: Reconsidering Patrilineal Descent Dialogue Project

April 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Who is born a Jew?

Opinions on this issue have shifted over the last four thousand years, and today is a particularly vexed topic. Must one have a Jewish mother, as Talmudic tradition came to assert, or does a Jewish father also make one Jewish?

For us, as a community, it is not just an intellectual question, but one that is alive amongst us. Many of us have strong feelings about what’s right, and worries about ramifications should we adopt a perspective that diverges from the norm in Jewish Vancouver.

Or Shalom members, register at orshalom.ca/dialogue-project to join the conversation in the context of a dialogue facilitated by trusted community members under the guidance of Mark Winston and Rabbi Hannah. We will speak from heart, mind and experience and we’ll spend time imagining our future.
