Machlochet L’shem Shamayim – Dispute for the Sake of Heaven

Coming together or breaking apart: How do we handle communal conflict when it can bring us closer together and how do we handle it when it breaks us apart?

There is a famous principle in Judaism called Machlochet L’shem Shamayim, Argument for the Sake of Heaven. In this session we will explore how dispute has the power in Jewish traditions to bring people together, and how it has the power to break people apart.


Faculty: Rabbi Justin Held, Beth Jacob
