Are you a Jewish atheist? Not sure what you beleive? Then this is the discussion for you! By confronting a number of profound and often overlooked biblical stories, we will learn that by shifting the question from "What do I believe about God ?" to "What have I experienced?" we can find new understandings of what it means to be connected to the Divine.

We live in a moment of unprecedented breakdown in civil discourse. Yet, our Jewish tradition upholds the principle that constructive disagreement for the sake of heaven (Mahloket L’Shem Shamayim), is not only imperative but a vital tool to generate discussion, critical thinking, personal growth, and the deepening of relationships. Through the study of Jewish texts and social psychology, we will distinguish between different types of disagreements and explore why good people may have diametrically opposing views on moral issues.
