MJTI Lifelong Learning Centre presents:
At the FOOT of the MOUNTAIN:Two Views onTorah and the Spirit
A Dialoguebetween Dr. Jennifer Rosner and Rabbi Joshua Lessard
Oct. 24, 8:00 pm EasternWebinar
Dr. Rosner and Rabbi Lessard will continue the dialogue that began in a classroom setting, continued as an email conversation and was captured in their book At the Foot of the Mountain: Two Views on Torah and the Spirit. Dr. Rosner and Rabbi Lessard are both deeply invested in the Messianic Jewish movement and its future, but hold opposing views toward key issues such as Torah and Spirit and maintaining a distinct Jewish identity without diminishing the centrality of Yeshua. They model respectful dialogue on controversial topics and challenge the Messianic Jewish movement to do the same. The purpose of this webinar is to 1) expand the conversation begun by Dr. Rosner and Rabbi Joshua to a broader audience with time for questions and comments from the audience and 2) challenge us to read and listen to opposing voices and then move the dialogue forward.
Book can be purchased at: Amazon.com or at Wipf and Stock
