Technology and Jewish Law with Rabbi Rose
February 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 5, 2019
In preparation for the Bierman Scholar-in-Residence weekend (Feb. 8-9), we will study responsa written by Rabbi Daniel Nevins, one of the most creative halakhic thinkers of our time, especially on issues of science and Jewish law. Together we will explore his writings about modern halakhic questions: Is it ever permissible to use electricity on Shabbat? Is lab-grown meat kosher (and is it meat or pareve)? What does Jewish law have to say about GMOs? How is the moment of death defined by Jewish law? After studying these questions together, we will be better prepared to get the most out of Rabbi Nevins’ visit to our community. Join us! No charge. Donations to the CBS adult education fund are appreciated.
