Maintaining and evolving a sustaining and integer Jewish identity

The Jewish identity has been talked about for many years. What is it and what are the different trends according to the varieties of Jewish groups? What is it that you really need to know about Judaism nowadays and how can we maintain and evolve a sustaining and integer Jewish identity? For some, it may sound like an easy answer (for instance the orthodox world) and for others, it may sound like a hard answer (for instance the liberal world). In this course, we will try to provide nuanced answers and more importantly, to ask better questions. We will talk about the timeless beauty of the psalms (Tehilim) and the ethics of our fathers (Pirkei Avot). Of course, it is possible to let yourself be inspired by the psalms and the ethics of our fathers only and to use those teachings for specific cases.
