How to Disagree Constructively from a Jewish Perspective. Led by CST members Roberta Berg MD and Stan Roodman Ph.D.
 
The lack of desire to understand those with opposing political opinions, and the inability to disagree constructively over critical questions, is posing an existential threat to democracies around the world.

In this course, we will utilize Jewish texts and wisdom to increase people's motivation and ability to understand and engage more constructively with opinions that differ from their own. 

We will examine a central question currently under political debate: "When do we agree to meet with our political adversaries, and when do we refuse?"
 
We will use videos and text readings from the PARDES Institute, Jerusalem to provide the main issues and dilemmas, then break into small groups for in depth discussions, followed by the total group discussions.
