Judaism talk and workshop in NYC

This one costs, sorry. I’ll be doing some free ones in the spring. (And I’ll be looking for places around the country to do them, so if you have a place that might be able to host an event and find an interested crowd, let me know.)

Can We Talk? “Open Source” Judaism with Douglas Rushkoff


Judaism was created for change; it is a tradition of inquiry and modification. Douglas Rushkoff calls it an “open source religion,” in which anything and everything is up for discussion. Through lecture, conversation, and break-out groups, we will consider the greatest challenges to Judaism and Jewishness today and determine the kinds of questions that need to be answered in order to confront these challenges.

You’re invited to engage with Judaism as its next generation of creators and partake of the religion’s oldest tradition: reinvention. Rushkoff is a widely published writer, commentator and documentarian whose latest work, Nothing Sacred: The Truth About Judaism, will be published in the spring.
