International Seminar for Halakhic Study, Fall 2020

The CJLS is sponsoring the International Seminar for Halakhic Study, a day on which Conservative/Masorti communities will come together to study a specific teshuvah of the CJLS.
In the Fall 2020 International Seminar for Halakhic Study, we studied egalitarian marriage with the teshuvot by Pamela Barmash and Gail Labovitz. The teshuvot and teaching materials are available below:

The purpose of the Seminar was to show how our spiritual values and ethical ideals shape our halakhic practice, to emphasize the importance of halakhah and the study of halakhah among Conservative/Masorti Jews, and to create a sense of a world-wide community among Conservative/Masorti congregations and schools.

Participants engaged in a number of the key texts of the teshuvah. 

We thank JTS for co-sponsoring this seminar.
