Praying to Another God: Prayer Space in the Age of Independent Minyanim

So, we're davening in a church. Many people have gut reactions about entering churches let alone davening in them, so how did we end up here and is it (we hope) okay? In this session, we'll take a look at what traditional sources have to say about how we can and cannot relate to non-Jewish prayer spaces and explore how different scenarios might elicit different responses.  


Rabbi Avi Strausberg is the Director of National Learning Initiatives at Hadar, and is based in Washington, DC. She received her rabbinic ordination from Hebrew College in Boston and is a Wexner Graduate Fellow. Energized by engaging creatively with Jewish text, she has written several theatre pieces inspired by the Torah and maintains a Daf Yomi haiku blog in which she writes daily Talmudic haikus. Avi is most grateful for her wife, Chana, and two children, Ori and Niv.
