Programming Graphics What Do We Mean When We Ask.. (LinkedIn Banner)

DATES & TIMES: Tuesdays, December 6 & 13, 10-11 am PT/1-2 pm ET (60 minutes)

REGISTRATION: Pre-registration is required. After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining.

TOPIC: What can we do when teshuva is insufficient? In these TWO sessions, we will delve into rabbinic sources that might offer new ways of thinking about how a Jewish community might rebuild itself after discovering that its leader was engaged in sexual harassment or abuse. These sessions will build on Dr. Sufrin’s September session (recording available upon request), but they are open to everyone, regardless of whether you attended that talk.

While attendance at both sessions is encouraged, you can choose to sign up for just one session. This session will be discussion-based and will not be recorded.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This session is designed for volunteers and employees of Jewish organizations who are seeking a deeper understanding of the Jewish framework around accountability for sexual harm, to more effectively advocate for internal culture change. The session will draw from rabbinic sources and utilize text study. All learning levels are welcome.


Dr. Claire E. Sufrin is the Senior Editor at Shalom Hartman Institute of North America. In this role, she is the editor of Sources and leads the Created Equal research group in the Kogod Research Center. She is the co-editor of the New Jewish Canon: Ideas and Debates 1980-2015.
