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

What can we do when teshuva is insufficient? In these TWO sessions, we drove 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 build on Dr. Sufrin’s September session (recording available upon request), but they were open to everyone, regardless of whether you attended that talk.

These sessions were discussion-based and were not recorded.

These sessions were 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 sessions came from rabbinic sources and utilized text study.


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.

This SRE program was held on Tuesdays, December 6 & 13, 10-11 am PT/1-2 pm ET (60 minutes)
