How Does a Jew Make it into Heaven? One question, many answers

Panel Discussion (video recording available, in German)

Program director Cilly Kugelmann interviews four practicing rabbi in Germany about otherworldly and commonplace matters, about dietary laws, sin, Shabbat and all that is important in Judaism. The rabbis represent four different religious currents: Orthodox, Masorti (conservative), Hasidism, and German Reform Judaism. They will answer questions from the audience about God and the world and throw light on their perspectives of Jewish theology.
