The DCA’s Jerusalem Think Tank, a forum of Jewish thinkers, educators and leaders, explores a wide range of Jewish topics. Think Tank Fellows present issues from their own lives – matters they struggle with every day – with the hope that exploring uncharted realms of Judaism in these challenging sessions will further invigorate authentic religious living.
For a while now, people have been wondering what the David Cardozo Academy Think Tank actually does. The Think Tank, a group of about fifteen thinking and committed individuals, meets twice a month to discuss intellectual and personal issues arising from their experience of Judaism, and to push forward cutting-edge ideas and re-imaginations of what Halachic Jewish life might look like.
Due to the very personal nature of the sharing, it’s not possible to publish the discussions as audio files. This blog represents the first instance of disseminating our thoughts to the public, and is comprised of thoughts shared on our Google group. A new one will go up periodically. We invite your comments, to create the kind of healthy and respectful dialogue we feel is crucial to Jewish intellectual life today. So please be our guest – read and write away!
