Schechter Rabbinical Seminary and the Religious Masorti Hashkafa (Worldview) and Spiritual Home

By Einat Ramon

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 2007

The author challenges why it is that American Jews have decided that denominationalism is no longer relevant and denominational frameworks should be discarded. She suspects that it may be a symptom of Western culture's fear of differences of opinion and its desire to erase cultural differences in general. The author, Dean of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary in Jerusalem, describes her reasoning behind promoting the creation of a dialogue among many conflicting voices to bring about a thriving school that will respond to the deep thirst for meaning among the Jewish people.
