Religion and Ritual. Are There Jewish Things?


The workshop “Religion and Ritual. Are There Jewish Things?” offers deeper insight into the diversity of Judaism today. Taking the Torah, the Holy Scripture of Judaism, as their starting point, the participants consider the significance of the Torah and the Hebrew language for Jews. What does everyday Jewish life look like today? And what is the interaction between the Scriptures and practice today?
