SPARK 2022 – Rabbi Dvora Weisberg – The Jewish Family
Tauber SPARK 2022
Option 1: The Jewish Family: Past, Present and Future
Taught by Rabbi Dvora Weisberg, Ph.D.
Session 1: The Jewish Family in Formation
This session will explore the biblical and rabbinic constructs of family. We will follow the evolution of the family from the tribal and clan-based vision of the Torah to the household or nuclear family described in the Talmud.
Session 2: The Jewish Family in Tradition: The Real and the Ideal
Classical Jewish texts offer statements about ideal relationships between parents and children, between spouses, and with other family members. At the same time, we have stories that suggest the ideal was often supplanted by real life conflict and tension. This session will offer a contrasting view of law and stories about family relationships.
Session 3: A Multitude of Jewish Families: A Contemporary View
We live in world where our definitions of and ideas about family are challenged by changing societal norms. This session will focus on ways that Judaism can continue to expand its understanding of family and what values can guide us in creating Jewish families.
