In this elective we will discuss the various roles played by Jewish Studies in the contemporary rabbinate, asking questions like, “How should we study Torah, and why?” “Should rabbis be ‘experts,’ and if so, then experts at what?” “How may their expertise be informed by academic Jewish Studies?” “How should Jewish Studies factor into the training of rabbis?” “What kind of collegial relationships should there be between rabbis and scholars of Jewish Studies?” and more. While we do not plan on finishing this elective with any clear-cut answers to these questions, we do hope to come out with better understandings of how we see Jewish Studies informing the work of rabbis in North America.
