Machloket Matters - Join us for a monthly Machloket Matters with educator Maxine Berman.

Jews are famous for this—but we have a special way of disagreeing with each other, one that allows us to discuss and resolve issues peacefully. Come learn about the art of Machloket, constructive disagreement, and how you can practice this skill yourself! These are held on the following Shabbat afternoons, 3:30-4:45 PM in the Penthouse: Jan 29, Feb 26, Mar 26, May 21, May 28, Jun 18.
