Rabbi Len Levin will speak about his book Studies in Judaism and Pluralism: Honoring the 60th Anniversary of the Academy for Jewish Religion
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event for $30.00 and will be signed by Rabbi Len Levin.
Pluralism is a vision of Judaism that accepts differences and embraces diversity within the Jewish community. Rabbi Levin has taught extensively about pluralism. In his own words: “To paraphrase Hillel: ”If being delegitimized for being different is hateful to you, do not do likewise to your fellow human being.” And “Who is wise? One who learns from everyone.” This is the whole Torah of pluralism; the rest is commentary. Go and learn! – Rabbi Leonard Levin
Rabbi Len Levin teaches Jewish philosophy at the Academy for Jewish Religion, a pluralistic seminary for rabbis and cantors. He is a member of Kol Rina, an independent minyan.
