Campaign 2018: Keep or Cancel? You Decide!

The 9Adar Project and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies are inviting rabbis, educators and community leaders to lead an intriguing 60-90 minute event called “Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively: The Sanhedrin Way.”  

  • Study Jewish texts about the ancient Sanhedrin’s guidelines for engaging in constructive mahloket (disagreement).
  • Practice constructive controversy through engaging in a mock-Sanhedrin exercise using the 9Adar 2018 conflict scenario, “Keep or cancel the controversial speaker? You Decide!”
  • After going through the constructive controversy exercise, cast your community’s vote. See how other communities across our various political and ideological divides voted and why.

Voting closes on July 15th, and the results will be available on the 9th of Av (July 21). Materials will continue to be available as part of the upcoming video and lecture series, Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively.

The session is intended for groups of at least eight people.

There is no charge for these materials. Click here to register for Mahloket Matters: The Sanhedrin Way.
