Six Jewish Debates Coming to Winnipeg

Monday, 18 September, 2017 - 8:14 pm

Rabbi Shmuly Altein of Chabad will recount 2000 years of Jewish history through the lens of six epic debates that rocked the Jewish world and still resound powerfully today.

Beginning Tuesday, October 31, at 7:30 pm, the Jewish Learning Centre will be offering a new six-session course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), titled Great Debates in Jewish History.

In commemoration of 70 years since archeologist Eleazar Sukenik purchased the first Dead Sea Scroll in November of 1957, the community is invited to examine and unlock the stories of these ancient manuscripts and what their texts reveal about the heated dispute between the Dead Sea Sect and the Jewish establishment.

“Judaism welcomes debate and discourse,” Rabbi Shmuly Altein of Chabad-Lubavitch, the local JLI instructor in Winnipeg, told the Jewish Post and News, “This JLI course invites participants to gain fascinating insight into six mega-debates that have split the Jewish community throughout our history—and some of these matters continue to be debated today!”
