Nowadays, there is my news and your news, your truth and my truth, and consensus about facts is increasingly elusive. Even the university, once the place where young minds pursued “veritas,” is more likely today to teach its students the postmodern prioritization of subjectivity over objectivity, discourse over reality, perspective over universal truth. Against this backdrop, HUC-JIR Symposium 2 will explore the various ways in which contemporary Jews–especially liberal Jews–grapple with the concept of the truth.

Rabbi Geoff Mitelman will be in conversation with Melvin Konner, MD, Ph.D. for Topic V, “Emet Umada – Truth & Science.”
