Where is God in Reform Judaism?
Apr 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

For over 3,000 years, Judaism has claimed a unique insight into the nature of God. But that insight has evolved together with the stories of our people. In the most recent centuries, the Reform Movement emerged as a religious response to modernity. But modern events and ideas, from the Holocaust to the State of Israel and the digital revolution have challenged us to ask: “Where is God in Reform Judaism?”

No Fee, but please RSVP below at least one week in advance for planning purposes.
