Event Type

Following a successful launch of the ScholarStream program in 5781, we are excited to announce the full year of ScholarStream learning in 5782! From October 2021 through May of 2022, the Conservative Movement seminaries and institutions are partnering to offer eight free series that will bring you face-to-face with the brightest and most engaging scholars our movement has to offer.


ScholarStream 5782 features three distinct arcs of learning that stand alone or flow into each other. Cultivating Our Relationships (series 1 & 2), Defining Our Sacred Spaces (series 3, 4, and 5), and Renewing Our Resilience (series 6, 7, and 8) will offer an exploration of who we are, where we are in relation to others, and how we move forward in this complicated world.

Series 1: Torah Relationships,

October (Wednesdays, 8PM) Classes:

  1. Oct. 6: “God, Abraham and Isaac: Who is the ‘Hero’ of the ‘Aqeda’?” with Dr. Alan Cooper of JTS
  2. Oct. 13: “Gendered Gaps: Remembering Sarah Where She is Most Erased” with Liza Bernstein of the Conservative Yeshiva
  3. Oct. 20: “Loving Peace, One Person at a Time” with Rabbi Bradley Artson of Ziegler
  4. Oct. 27: “The Dysfunctional Families of Genesis: What They–and Later Jewish Law– Tell us About How *Not* to Treat Our Parents, Siblings and Children” with Rabbi Elliot Dorff of Ziegler
