Willis’s topic is based on a course he co-developed and co-teaches with Brown University Professor of Judaic Studies Paul Nahme.  His presentation in Montclair is part of Bnai Keshet’s monthly Kaplan Minyan series, named for Reconstructionist Judaism founder Mordecai Kaplan. The talks are designed for people who enjoy a communal Shabbat and seek to enrich their understanding of Jewish peoplehood in a less traditional setting.
