“Can Robots be Jewish? and other pressing questions of modern life”

In “Can Robots be Jewish”, the rabbis’ responses span the range of modern Jewish thought and include Independent, Humanist, Jewish Renewal, Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Sephardic, Chabad perspectives. Sometimes they agree – but not often. Argument is a Jewish pastime and even a form of worship; it’s been that way throughout the ages, ever since rabbis sat on dirt floors in Babylonia and disputed the words of the sages. As the old joke goes, ask two Jews a question, and you’ll get three opinions. With ten or more rabbis debating creative questions, you get all that, and more!
