2020 Annual Assessment

What should the nature of modern Jewish religious culture be? To what extent should it center around the traditional normative sources of Talmud and Halacha? Should it also have room for, or even focus on, non-Halachic sources such as Aggadah and Kabbalah and even heterodox, antinomian streams? The latter may be more relevant to contemporary secular society.
