Rabbinical programs are designed to cultivate rabbis who balance transmission of tradition with adaptation to contemporary culture. How do rabbinical programs educate rabbis in the 21st century, a time when instability is the new norm? This far-reaching question led to a community conversation with Rabbi David Ellenson, Rabbi Joshua Davidson, Rabbi Hayim Herring, Rabbi Joy Levitt, and Dr. Erin Leib Smolker.
