We are excited to announce the launching of a new 6 week course: The Jewish course of Why. Judaism is known for its rational basis, as a place where questions are freely asked and ideas are freely debated. It is that spirit of questioning and discovery that you will encounter in The Jewish Course of Why.
Are you ready to give your Judaism the intellection you know it deserves? Are you prepared to tackle the seemingly-unanswerable questions about Jewish belief and practice? Then signup today for The Jewish Course of Why.
The topics of this course span a diverse range, from fun, light, and off-the-beaten-track questions, to more complex and controversial issues. Ever wondered what is the cause of antisemitism? Does anyone have free choice? The role of women in Jewish life? Does Judaism believe in Heaven and Hell? Why animal sacrifices? and many other topics.
During the 6 week course we will cover 50 various questions relating to Jews and Judaism. You will also gain insight into mysterious Jewish practices, strange biblical narratives, and enigmas of Jewish identity.
To accommodate various schedules, the same course will be taught in two tracks.
Option 1: Six consecutive Sundays 3pm - 4:30pm beginning Sunday February 26.
Option 2: Six consecutive Tuesdays 8pm - 9:30pm beginning Tuesday February 28.
If you are not able to attend any of the above dates and times but would still like to take the course, please let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Each participant will receive a student handbook at a cost of $38. We strongly recommend getting the handbook although not absolutely mandatory.
Registration is required for this course. Please register to your right by Sunday Feb 19.
If you are ordering a student book, please pay here no later than Feb 19.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
