Rabbis David Fine and Jacob Lieberman of Temple Israel & JCC, leaders of TIJCC’s two congregations, egalitarian Conservative and Reconstructionist, will lead an exploration on the twin legacies of Rabbi Mordecai M. Kaplan on Wednesday, April 13, at 8 p.m.
Dr. Kaplan was a professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism. The program will look at how this one Jewish rabbi and educator changed the face of American Judaism and how his ideas continue to affect the course of both streams. The event is a prelude to a special scholar-in-residence weekend, set for May 6 to 7, when TIJCC hosts Rabbi Deborah Waxman, president of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.
