Special Torah Study - Exploring Our Jewish Identity Part 2

This series of Torah study sessions is designed to help us understand our own principles of Jewish identity - both as individuals and as a community - by examining that identity through the lens of Halakhah - Jewish law. How we respond to “the Jewish way of doing thing” defines the contours of how we think of ourselves and our faith. This week we look at Orthodoxy as it arose as a response to Jewish emancipation and the desire for assimilation into the larger culture.
