UPCOMING SESSIONS

"What's Jewish about Jewish Political Thought?"

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

12:00 - 12:30 pm ET

Register Today

If Jewish thought is open to conflicting interpretations, and as Reform Jews we accept that individuals are the ultimate arbiters of moral meaning of our tradition, how do we make sense of others who claim to know what a "Jewish" position is on any particular policy or issue is, be it gun control or foreign policy? But if we deny the existence of any explicitly "Jewish" position about a policy or politics more generally, how do we account for the very real and important phenomenon of an identifiable "prophetic-tradition" within Judaism that demands justice in our world? In this session, we will look at the theoretical issues behind these questions and ask, what exactly is Jewish Political Thought?

Wednesday, July 8, 2020

12:00 - 1:00 pm ET

Register Today

The texts of the ancient Near East and eastern Mediterranean Bronze and Iron Ages hint at the use of psychotropic substances ("hallucinogens") in religious and shamanistic rituals. But the archaeological evidence for this is thin on the ground. This talk will itemize the available hallucinogens and reexamine a series of artifacts that are believed to be related to the consumption of psychotropic substances.

The profusion of Jewish musical creativity over the last two centuries has only accelerated in our time, and the antecedents of that abundance date to antiquity.

"Moral Injury and the Effect of Covid-19 on Soul Repair and Pastoral Work"

Rabbi Kim Geringer and Rabbi Nancy Wiener, D.Min.

June 23, 2020

This session will be posted shortly.

Moral injury is the experience of profound brokenness resulting from violation of one's core moral values. Soul repair is the process of healing those wounds. What do we do when we or others breach our moral codes? How do we heal -- or help others heal -- from the injuries these breaches inflict? As Covid-19 grips our nation and world, we will examine how our liturgy and texts speak specifically to Jewish clergy, expanding understanding of moral injury, and enhancing pastoral work with those suffering from its effects.

Presented in partnership with the Central Conference of American Rabbis.

"Why Do We Fear Them? The Origin and History of Islamophobia"

Rabbi Reuven Firestone, Ph.D.

Moderated by Joshua Holo, Ph.D.

June 2, 2020

Islamophobia is not new, though the term (coined, it seems, in 1910) became popular only in the 1990s. Fear of Islam (or of Muslims) entered into Western culture and worldview since the emergence of Islam in the 7th century, and in the Middle Ages Jews were considered allies of the reviled Muslims in much of Europe. This session will examine the origins and history of Islamophobia and consider why it has so often been associated with fear and hatred of Jews. Rabbi Reuven Firestone, Ph.D., serves as Regenstein Professor in Medieval Judaism and Islam at HUC-JIR's Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles.

Presented in partnership with JewishLive.

"Clinical Ethics: Challenges During the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Pandemic"

Presented by Robert L. Fine, MD, FACP, FAAHPM, and Rabbi Mark Washofsky, Ph.D.

Moderated by Joshua Holo, Ph.D.

May 31, 2020

Is it ethical to deny treatment to one patient to help another patient? Is it ethical to alter current CPR standards of care if doing so leads to worse outcomes? The novel corona virus (SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19), has led to new ways of managing respiratory failure and hopefully creative, better methods for developing and manufacturing vaccines. The pandemic has also created novel ethical challenges that must be faced at the bedside by physicians, nurses, other health care professionals, patients, and families. Those same ethical challenges must also be grappled with by the polis, the body politic. To provide perspective on these ethical challenges, we will begin with a brief exploration of the pandemic in the United States. Doctor Fine and Rabbi Washofsky will then compare the Hippocratic and contemporary clinical ethics traditions with the Jewish legal tradition to suggest answers the questions above. The program will then open for dialogue with attendees in hopes of broadening community understanding of the ethical challenges, maintaining hope for the future, and promoting the social solidarity necessary to turn back the pandemic, saving as many lives as possible. Access ancillary materials here.

This session is presented as part of The Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health's free webinar series on COVID-19 through medical, political, public-health, and Jewish perspectives. Learn more.

"Yizkor, the Unsung Ending to Shavuot (Nu? Let's Sing About It!)"

Cantor Yvon Shore

May 26, 2020

Judaism mandates communal reflection on the intimacy of mortality and loss four times a year: Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot. The powerful liturgy and music of Yizkor offers a cathartic response to the frailty of the human condition. Let us reconnect with the purpose, origins, and meaning of these prayers through music and study. Cantor Yvon Shore serves as Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at HUC-JIR/Cincinnati.

"Jewish Personal Names Around the World: Tradition and Creativity"

The HUC-JIR Jewish Languages Project

Sarah Bunin Benor, Ph.D.

May 21, 2020

From ancient to present times, Jews have given their babies Hebrew and/or local names, demonstrating both their Jewish distinctiveness and their integration into local societies. This lecture offers a glimpse into this history, from the ancient Middle East to medieval Cairo, from Renaissance Rome to modern Poland. Then participants will learn how these trends continue among contemporary American Jews. When Jews today select names for their babies, they are sending a message about their specific type of Jewish American identity. The lecture ends with an (adorable) foray into American Jewish pets' names. When Jews give their dogs and cats names like Babka, Rashi, Ketzele, and Golda Meow, they highlight some aspects of Jewishness that are important to them.

"Confronting Human Frailty"

Rabbi Joshua Garroway, Ph.D.

May 19, 2020

A pandemic makes most people--even the young and healthy--keenly aware of the fragility and impermanence of human existence. A famous sage teaches that such awareness, even during normal times, rests at the foundation of an ethical life.

Rabbi Joshua Garroway, Ph.D., serves as Professor of Early Christianity and the Second Commonwealth.

"Jewish Surnames and Name Changing Around the World"

The HUC-JIR Jewish Languages Project

Sarah Bunin Benor, Ph.D.

What makes a family name Jewish? Did immigrants change their names at Ellis Island? This session answers these and many more questions about Jewish family names. Participants will learn the origins and meanings of patronymic (father-based) surnames like Abramovitch, Isaacs, and Yaghobian; geographic names like Ashkenazi, Dardashti, and Shapiro; and profession names like Hakim, Melamed, and Fingerhut. They will learn about Jews changing their family names in the 20th century, especially in the United States. They will come away with an understanding of the cultural diversity and unity of the Jewish Diaspora.

Ruach in the Chadar Ochel: Language at American Jewish Summer Camps

The HUC-JIR Jewish Languages Project

Sarah Bunin Benor, Ph.D.

May 7, 2020

At most American Jewish summer camps, programs are conducted primarily in English, but the environment is infused with Hebrew signs, songs, and cheers. Hebrew-English sentences are common: "Madrichim [counselors], please bring your chanichim [campers] to the teatron [theater] immediately after the Birkat [Grace After Meals]." Why do some camps infuse Hebrew in these unusual ways? How are other languages used, including Russian, Yiddish, and Ladino? How do participants feel about this language mixing? This talk draws from Benor, Krasner, and Avni's forthcoming book, Hebrew Infusion: Language and Community at American Jewish Summer Camps, based on over 200 interviews and visits to 36 camps.

Becoming Frum: How Newcomers Learn the Language and Culture of Orthodox Judaism

The HUC-JIR Jewish Languages Project

Sarah Bunin Benor, Ph.D.

April 30, 2020

There is more to becoming Orthodox than observing religious laws. Newly Orthodox Jews, or ba'alei teshuva (lit. 'those who return'), encounter a very different culture, including new ways of talking, dressing, and acting. Focusing on the Yiddish and Hebrew words used by English-speaking Orthodox Jews, this lecture explores how "BTs" integrate into the community partly by taking on these new practices. Based on Dr. Benor's first book, this talk is appropriate for all audiences, regardless of prior exposure to Orthodox Judaism.

Sarah Bunin Benor, Ph.D., is a Professor of Contemporary Jewish Studies and Linguistics at HUC-JIR's Skirball Campus in Los Angeles, and the creator of the HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project.

"What Is Jewish Political Thought?"

Andrew Rehfeld, Ph.D.

April 28, 2020

Does the Jewish People have a distinctive approach to political questions, a distinctive political philosophy? Many nations and peoples are thought to have one. American Political Thought, for example, might be characterized by the ideals set out in the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution, including a commitment to a balance of powers, the separation of church and state, and strong individual rights among other things. If the Jewish people are a distinctive people, then what is our political philosophy and where do we find its source? How does our tradition treat basic questions of legitimacy (the right to use power over others), justice, and right? And are these questions even intelligible given the diversity of Jewish thinking and ideas over the last 3000 years? In this talk, we introduce these issues and likely raise more questions than we answer!

Andrew Rehfeld, Ph.D., is the President and Professor of Political Thought at HUC-JIR.
