    Introduction to Jewish Learning, Class 4

    Yom Kippur in later Jewish writings or, What does this all mean for me?

    When: Wednesday, 10/2/2019 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

    Where: Marcia & John Goldman Teen Center, Room (Bldg M) Room M-121

    Judaism: The New Basics continues with a four-part series during the month of Elul—Introduction to Jewish Learning.

    During the month leading up to the High Holidays, this series will provide a four-part introduction to Jewish text study, using Yom Kippur as a case study. We will trace Yom Kippur's roots in the Torah, then we will see how these ideas evolve in the Mishnah, the Talmud and later writings. 

    This is an opportunity to get to know the most important Jewish texts. If you have always wondered what the Talmud is, how the Torah and Talmud are related and how Judaism uses these ideas to create its way of life—well, this is the class for you!

    No background in Jewish learning needed.

    This class will meet on Wednesdays from 7:30–9:00 PM in the Teen Center.

    Participants are welcome to attend any individual class or to enroll in the entire course for a discounted rate. To register for the series (four classes) click here; click below to register for individual classes.
