The Sanhedrin Way
A 60-90 minute educational-workshop for use in your community

  • Study Jewish texts about the ancient Sanhedrin’s guidelines for engaging in constructive mahloket(disagreement).
  • Practice constructive controversy through engaging in a mock-Sanhedrin exercise using the conflict scenario, “Keep or cancel the controversial speaker? You Decide!”
  • After going through the constructive controversy exercise, cast your community’s vote. See how other communities across our various political and ideological divides voted and why.

The session is intended for groups of at least eight people. There is no charge for these materials.

Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively – The Sanhedrin Way, includes sourcesheets, mock-Sanhedrin exercises, an educational video and facilitator’s guide.
