Remix Judaism ALI Evening Series

Wednesday Evening December 1st at 7:00pm (PST)

Join us for our first ALI evening class with Professor Roberta Kwall, author of Remix Judaism: Preserving Tradition in a Diverse World. Registration link is at the bottom of this page.

In Remix Judaism: Preserving Tradition in a Diverse World Kwall articulates a distinct vision for Judaism that illustrates how people can deepen their connection to authentic Jewish tradition by performing selected rituals consistently, and attaching a personal meaning to them.

The book offers an eloquent and thoughtful new vision for all Jews seeking a sense of belonging in a changing world, regardless of their current level of observance. Kwall sets out a process of selection, rejection, and modification of rituals that allow for a focus on Jewish tradition rather than on the technicalities of Jewish law.

Professor Kwall's goal is not to sell her own religious practices to readers but, rather, to encourage them to find their own personal meaning in Judaism outside the dictates of Commandment by broadening their understanding of how law, culture and tradition fit together. In Remix Judaism, Kwall inspires her audience to be intentional and mindful about the space they allocate for these elements in defining their individual Jewish journeys and identities. 

Roberta Rosenthal Kwall is the Raymond P. Niro Professor at DePaul University College of Law. Professor Kwall earned her JD from the University of Pennsylvania and received her undergraduate degree in Religious Studies from Brown University. She also has a Master's Degree in Jewish Studies.
