EPISODE 17: Jewish Justice is NOT for Just US: A Rabbi in Jerusalem speaks to human rights and democracy

Meet Dr. Shaiya Rothberg. Living in Jerusalem, he is a conservative rabbi and teacher of theology, Kabbalah, and written and oral torah from the Midrash to the Middle Ages. In this conversation, we discuss democracy and human rights from a Jewish perspective. Here, he explains the difference between Judaism and Torah, which he defines as Truth. Unlike many observant Jews, however, he understands multiple pathways to access the capital T Truth, and he explores what it would mean for Israelis to take responsibility for the conflict in the region while holding both sides accountable. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: 

  1. What truth means to one rabbi and how it differs from his religion
  2. What it means to be made in the image of God
  3. A Jewish approach to peace that includes criticism of the West Bank occupation
