AJRCA President Rabbi Mel recently sat down with AJRCA faculty members Cantor Jonathan L. Friedmann and Joel Gereboff, two of the three editors (along with AJRCA co-founder Rabbi Steve Robbins) of the new book, “Nondenominational Judaism: Perspectives on Pluralism and Inclusion in 21st-Century Jewish Professional Education.”
The book includes essays from faculty, administrators and alumni from AJRCA and other institutions, sharing their personal, academic and philosophical reflections being part of a pluralistic Jewish setting.
During this conversation, Friedmann and Gereboff share not only some of the topics covered and their goals for this work, but also delve into how AJRCA, as a nondenominational institution, handles both academic and spiritual participation when faculty and students all bring their own perspectives and expectations.
We hope you enjoy this insightful discussion!
