Ever wonder how a Jewish community can effectively accommodate people with different views of kashrut, liturgy, and Halakhah (Jewish law), yet retain its own identity? At our January 22nd Research/Study Group meeting, we explored this question. The discussion focused on an on-going blog on Jewish pluralism that has been occurring on http://mahrabu.blogspot.com/. The blog's author belongs to an egalitarian minyan in New York and was an organizer for last summer's National Havurah Committee Institute. This discussion of Jewish pluralism has been building on line for the last 18 months. The Mah Rabu blog also includes two interesting new postings on Reform Halakhah, which might be a topic for future Little Minyan discussions.
If anyone from the Little Minyan is reading this, how did the discussion go? Did you reach any new conclusions?
