This season in the Biran Beit Midrash we will
spend our months Reclaiming The Religious Heart. 

What does it mean to be as inclusive as God would want us to be? Is there a Jewish ethic for healthy disagreement? Does our tradition offer us insight into how our eyes and ears can be extensions of God’s love in the world? Are boundaries still relevant in our world, and if so, who decides which ones, and how are those decisions made? In other words, we’re going to get to the heart of religious life this year. 

Though Judaism provides a depth and beauty for meaningful life that we at Adas Israel strive to present, too often our religious tradition is hijacked by polarized discourse. But we know deep down that our unique and  grounded vision of Torah asks us to look beyond the binary in search of a robust, dynamic, and holistic religious experience, one that respects and celebrates the edges, but also prides itself on exploring the textured chasm between them.
