INTRODUCTION TO JUDAISM (with Rabbi David Steinberg)

(Year One of a Two-Year Course) with Rabbi David Steinberg

This course is designed for those who are exploring Judaism for the first time as well as for those who want a deeper understanding of Jewish practice and thought.  Our class will be structured around viewing together video lectures from the Great Courses series “Introduction to Judaism” taught by Rabbi Shai Cherry, PhD.

The class meets from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursday evenings of each month starting in November 2019, with a couple of exceptions as noted below.  For each class session, the first 30 minutes will be devoted to introductory discussion and text study, the next 30 minutes will be devoted to viewing a video lecture by Dr. Cherry, and the final 30 minutes will be devoted to follow-up discussion.  Drop-ins are welcome.  No prior background is required.  Please contact Rabbi David if you have questions.
