Full course description


 Whether you’ve been working for Hillel for years, or whether you’re brand new, questions and struggles of pluralism arise in our work. In this session, we will investigate pluralism as a value in Jewish life, and explore how it furthers our work on campus. We will learn various dimensions of pluralism and its limits through both text and case studies, empowering participants to live in communities of diverse multiple Jewish identities. Together, we’ll question: How do I live a life of conviction while remaining tolerant of others? How can I emphasize what's right for one may not be right for another without falling into relativism? How do I cultivate a sense that you don't have to be wrong for me to be right? How do I satisfy diverging contingents within my community? What are the limits of pluralism? And, if you love this session, you’ll have the opportunity to have a long-distance hevruta (learning partner) with another Hillel professional through ProjectZug. This session will turn into a 4-part hevtura series. Attend the session for more details or visit
