Pluralism: the Passion of Unambiguous Uncertainty

By Levi D. Lauer

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 25, 1994

Levi D. Lauer argues for more diversity and pluralism within Jewish learning. He believes that there are many ways to live a well educated, carefully structured, and dialectically-driven Jewish life. Lauer suggests that in study houses, a pluralist commitment should underwrite the teaching. He provides several reasons why this should happen, and what would be gained. He states that if Jews can learn with one another they will be able enjoy the advantages of separate and common pursuit.
