The fourth of our Lyons Learning Project videos is now available, we’ll be adding to them as we draw closer to the Launch Reception. A recurring theme in conversations is the way that we must be able to define Judaism for ourselves – which includes skills, values and knowledge related to Judaism. The 21st century is one that theoretically enables the hierarchies of knowledge to be broken down and the hierarchies of power in the community are also shifting. We no longer rely on our rabbis to let us know what, how or why we do things and our communities, boards, and rabbis no longer have the power to determine authentic Judaism.
Our fourth video contributor – Charlotte – describes an experience of realising how little she knew as an adult, seeking a place of learning coherent with her politics and values and shares her joy in learning and the millenia old conversations.
