Responsa: Development of Jewish Law

(Formerly: Weekly Talmud Study)

Thursdays, weekly, 8:30 am (after Shacharit)


Jewish law is a living tree that comes alive in discussion. Using Responsa written by rabbis of the Conservative movement, Temple member and lawyer Mark Goodman shines a light on contemporary questions and how they’re negotiated by rabbis today. This is not a how-to class; it’s an informal space in which we can learn how contemporary problems have been discussed and how laws develop, and where we can add our own voices to the discussion.  Previous knowledge of Jewish texts is not necessary and any shared texts will be provided in English.

Mark Goodman is a retired lawyer who has been a member of Holy Blossom since last century. He has studied and read Jewish history since his undergraduate days and has recently complete an M.A. in World War II Studies at Arizona State University. Presently he is enrolled in the Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Gratz College. You may have guessed, he doesn’t golf. He is the very proud husband of Avra Rosen and together they have two daughters, a son-in-law and a dog named Messi. Yes, he is also a soccer fan.
