Comparing traditional and Humanistic Jewish liturgy - Rabbi Jonathan Cohen

Humanistic Jewish liturgy ... is that an oxymoron? Isn't liturgy about praying to God, and doesn't humanism sidestep if not reject belief in God? Believe it or not, the Humanistic Judaism movement has developed much non-theistic liturgy, liturgy that focuses on Jewish values, hopes and beliefs. In this session, Jonathan Cohen will compare some of the most famous traditional Jewish prayers and their humanistic Jewish alternatives. Those interested will have the opportunity to write liturgy of their own. Rabbi Jonathan Cohen, Ph.D., is a law professor at UF, where he teaches, among other subjects, Jewish law. His publications include articles on Jewish thought in the Reform and Reconstructionist movements' academic journals.
