Three Jewish Responses to Modernity
Start Date: 2/11/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 2/11/2013End Time: 8:45 PM

Event Description
The arrival of modernity more than two hundred years ago brought significant political and legal changes for world Jewry. Understanding where Jewry is today and where it may go requires analyzing and understanding the process that has taken place since modernity’s infancy. In three sessions Rabbi Moshe Davis will explore how the identity of the Jewish community was radically transformed through the birth of Chassidism, the German Enlightenment and the Yeshiva Movement, each of which were substantial in laying the groundwork for the modern Jewsh cmmunity.
February 11: Chassidism
March 11 : The German Enlightenment
April 8: The Mussar Movement
Rabbi Davis received his ordination from Yeshiva University and is the rabbi at Brith Sholom Beth Israel in Charleston.
