Belief for Disbelievers | Wednesday, October 25 – Calling all skeptics and seekers, the agnostics, and the atheists! This session will embrace healthy doses of doubt as we explore an array of Jewish theologies and expand vocabulary and understandings of God.

Heretics Among Us | Wednesday, November 1 – Throughout Jewish thought, often the most impactful Jewish theologians have been excommunicated and branded as heretics. Join as we explore the beliefs of Maimonides, Spinoza, and Kaplan as we look to celebrate the ways our challenges of faith may come to be seen as sacred.

The third session of Rabbi Ben Spratt’s “Grappling with God” series – originally scheduled for November 8 – has been rescheduled to Monday, November 13 at 7:00 PM. This event will explore the theme of Faith in Fracture set against the events of October 7 and the ensuing surge of antisemitism across the world. In dialogue with Rabbi Diana Fersko, we will dive into the stark divisions of the current moment, the unprecedented wave of anti-Jewish vitriol, how we got here, and how we respond.
