Abstract:

If being Jewish is to regain its meaning for Jews today, the Jewish community must be transformed. While it's impossible to "know" the exact shape the new paradigm will take, we must begin, with humility and respect for alternative proposals, the difficult, yet crucial task of proposing new visions. Here in Boston, 10 years of open discussion and experimentation are leading us to propose a community of Torah-serious Jewish learning, and tzedek--social justice for our Jewish people and all humankind.
