Can Robots Be Jewish?
Time & Location
About The Event
Amy E. Schwartz is editor of Moment magazine's "Ask the Rabbi" column. In Can Robots Be Jewish? and Other Pressing Questions of Modern Life, she plumbs the depths of modern Jewish thought, posing questions to rabbis from from Independent, Humanist, Jewish Renewal, Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Sephardic, and Chabad traditions. Sometimes they agree – but not often. Argument is a Jewish pastime and even a form of worship; it’s been that way throughout the ages, ever since rabbis sat on dirt floors in Babylonia and disputed the words of the sages. As the old joke goes, ask two Jews a question, and you’ll get three opinions. With 10 or more rabbis debating creative questions, you get all that and more!
