The David Cardozo Academy Think Tank invites the public to an OPEN THINK TANK: “The Halachic Approach That Destroyed the Bet Mikdash – Alive and Well Today?”
A discussion of mechanisms of halachic ruling, then and now.
Think Tank member Calev Ben-Dor will lead us in study of the famous Talmudic story of Kamtza and Bar Kamtza. We will discuss what we can deduce about how halacha is and should be decided, and the story’s contemporary relevance in light of divisive issues recently in the news.
The session will take place in the atmosphere of open discussion fostered by the Think Tank, and several members will be present. Introduction by Rabbi Cardozo.
Entrance: 20 NIS per person. Seats are limited.
Refreshments will be served.
