Location: Lindenbaum Pavilion

Central’s clergy reflect upon contemporary issues through the lens of Jewish text and tradition. Each evening will begin with dinner, followed by an hour of learning and discussion. Come with your CORE Group or on your own, these discussions are a wonderful way to continue to get to know both the clergy and your fellow members.
Join Rabbi Lori Koffman for our next session where we will explore reproductive health and the Jewish tradition. With many states introducing “heartbeat bills,” and New York state passing the landmark Reproductive Health Act, there has been a good deal of controversy in the news lately regarding abortion and family planning. Come hear what Jewish tradition has to say about these issues, and how the national debate raises some serious concerns around the First Amendment’s separation of Church and State. Dinner will be served.
