Studying in a Pluralistic Environment

By Theodore Steinberg

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1997

During the summer of 1997, some 80 rabbis, educators, and interested laypeople, mostly from the United States (but also from Europe and South America), met for ten days under the auspices of Shalom Hartman Institute's Rabbinic Torah Study Seminar, to study texts and reflect on two related themes, "Conversion" and "The Meaning of Idolatry for Our Age." The author surveys some of the issues raised in the seminar, focusing mainly on the issue of conversion, and on addresses given by Rabbi David Hartman regarding the nature of current halakhic discourse.
