The Torah Doesn't Seem to Have A Place for People Like Me

Rabbi Jason Rubenstein

Maimonides is often thought of as a scientist, doctor, and legal thinker—and he is all of these. In this session, we’ll develop a new picture of Maimonides’ central project: developing a devoted, good-faith reading of the Torah without opening core beliefs to revision. The latter part of the session will be about taking Maimonides as a potential model for reading the Torah with an open mind and heart—and with our own firm convictions. Recorded at the Rabbinic Yeshiva Intensive 2018.
