“In Light of Truth: When the Truth is Unclear, How Do We Respond?” From competing “truthful” claims on property to accurately timing God’s arrival, there are times when we can’t be 100% sure of the truth. In this class we’ll explore how the Rabbis dealt with ambiguity around the truth and how it may better inform our understanding of ultimate truth.
No registration required. This is a drop in class and can be joined at any time. To learn more visit romemu.org/adult-education. For questions, please email eden@romemu.org.
