ABOUT THIS EVENT: Let’s forget everything we’ve been told about what it means to be Jewish and delve into the four books which forever made, and changed Jewish history; The Bible – where our story begins; The Talmud – when we are told to question everything; The Guide for the Perplexed – the book which told to be rational, & The Zohar – the book which revealed God’s secret. In this class we will learn about the unique revolution offered by each book, unravel what it has meant to be Jewish over time, and perhaps even come to question what being Jewish means for each one of us.
