Expanding the Canon: Transforming Judaism in the 21st Century

Jewish learning has long focused on texts by an elite group of men with particular ideas about Judaism. Two core values — celebrating debate and multivocality, and privileging male voices — live in tension in our texts. What would it mean to radically expand the canon, incorporating voices of women and others on the margins? If we complicate our conception of what voices are authoritative and what values define Judaism, would we see Judaism differently? We will explore these growing pains of reorientation, and what’s at stake for the Jewish community.
