Not surprisingly, Jews do not always agree and at key moments in our history, there have been de-bates about what direction Judaism should go. Does spirituality come from intellect or from emo-tion? What are the boundaries of Jewish thought? Big questions underlying big debates. We will examine four key debates from the time of the start of Hasidism to an imagined debate between Theodor Herzl and Rabbi Isaac M. Wise about Zionism. We think we know who won, but there is more to the story. These are questions that we continue to debate today.
