Rabbi Yitzhak Hutner (1906-1980), a leader of America’s Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) community, was also one of the most original and challenging thinkers in Jewish history. Join Rabbi Abe for this five week class as we dive into Rav Hutner’s teachings on Pesah. English translation will be offered for all texts and no prior experience is required.



The class takes place in Kahaner Auditorium at 10:00 AM. Attendance is limited to 16 participants so that social distancing can be maintained. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and bring a mat if possible; mats at the synagogue are limited. Please wear a mask while in the building.




ScholarStream Series 4 takes place Wednesdays, January 19, 26 and February 2, 9 at 8:00 PM
  • Wednesday, January 19, 2022, Daniel S. Nevins & Lauren Tuchman of CJLS speak on Removing the Stumbling Block: From Theory to Practice. What pathways to Jewish leadership do halakhic sources offer to Jews who are blind?
  • Wednesday, January 26, 2022, Pamela Barmash, Naomi Brunlehrmann & Susan Cohen of CJLS on The Status of the Heresh and of Sign Language. What is it like for a Deaf Jew to read in rabbinic literature that the deaf are placed in the same category as minors and the psychologically deranged, yet read in the Torah, “you shall not insult the deaf”?
  • Wednesday, February 2, 2022, David Fishman of JTS on When Jews Made Fellow Jews “Other”: Hasidism and Its Opponents. While Hasidim coexisted peacefully with non-Hasidim in many communities, the Mitnagdim (“opponents”) in many larger Jewish centers in Eastern Europe reacted to the Hasidim not only with condemnation, but with writs of excommunication and measures to persecute the members of the new movement.
  • Wednesday, February 9, 2022, Gail Labovitz of Ziegler on From Kinyan to Brit: Options for Egalitarian Partnerships in Conservative Halakhah. Could it be possible to have a Jewish marriage in which each partner, of whatever gender, is equally responsible for initiating the binding relationship, and has equal rights to seek its end when necessary?
