Nosh & Knowledge: Free Will

Description: Free will in Judaism is the capacity to choose between different courses of actions, words or thoughts—not due to outside influence, internal nature or any sort of personal preference. Just a balanced choice between right and wrong. This notion that human beings can exercise their own free will when making moral decisions is axiomatic to Judaism. And the conflict between human free will and the omnipotence of the Creator is a pervasive theme in the Jewish narrative of history. Cantor Stuart Binder will examine this paradox that Jewish thinkers have wrestled with for thousands of year – how can God endow human beings with free will and remain God?  A kosher lunch will be provided by Greenwood House and there is a requested donation of $5.00 per person. You may also bring your own kosher-style lunch.
