  • COURSE OVERVIEW

    Attend all or some of the classes
  • Shabbos, January 12 ~ Breaking Norms

  • BREAKING NORMS
    Challenging Yourself to Touch Another The Four Questions feature prominently in the collective Jewish imagination. While these questions have been chanted for millennia, fewer know that embedded within the structure of the Passover seder is a clarion call for every Jew to put on a hat they may have never imagined donning. Answer the call!
    Parshas Bo

  • Shabbos, January 19 ~ Wet Behind the Ears

  • WET BEHIND THE EARS
    Balancing Enthusiasm with Maturity
    At the foot of the sea with the Egyptian army thundering behind them, one Jewish tribe started . . . throwing stones at another tribe! What? As we unravel this mystery, discover how to strike the balance between the enthusiasm you seek and the maturity you wish to master.
    Parshas Beshalach

  • Shabbos, February 2 ~ Making Tough Choices

  • MAKING TOUGH CHOICES
    Grabbing On to the Reins of Life
    Ever landed in a tough spot with difficult choices? Was there a pitiful situation that set you up for some pretty bad choices? A little-known law about a slave getting his ear pierced at the door of his master encourages us all to face the music and make the best choice we can.
    Parshas Mishpotim

  • Shabbos, February 9 ~ The Aroma of Acrimony

  • THE AROMA OF ACRIMONY
    Why You Should Never Give Up
    Nobody’s perfect. Our personal Judaism, as with all the things in life, can get a little tough. Does that mean we’re failing? Why should we continue to struggle if the calm never comes? This class, on the Temple altars, sheds light on the glory of the grind.
    Parshas Terumah

  • Shabbos, February 16 ~ Clothes Make the Person

  • CLOTHES MAKE THE PERSON
    Behavioral Mastery Is the Name of the Game
    From the moment Adam and Eve used leaves to cover their naked flesh, humans have forever been clothed. What does Judaism have to say about your suit and your prom dress? Discover the rules and regulations, the culture and the kabbalah of the clothing in your closet.
    Parshas Tetzaveh

  • Shabbos, February 23 ~ Forget Me Not!

  • FORGET ME NOT!
    Connection Is the Key to Memory
    Now that we all have smartphones in our pockets, it seems ridiculous to tie a string around your finger to remember something. But that’s how things were done for millennia. What’s the connection between a knot and memory? Well, the connection is -believe it or not - connection.
    Parshas Ki Sisa

  • Optional continued Learning

    No fee for extra classes
  • Shabbos, March 2 ~ Flip the Script

  • FLIP THE SCRIPT
    Writing the Narrative of Your Own Life
    We live life one day at a time, every day another chapter. As the days pile up, they string together a narrative, a story that you tell yourself and relate to others. So what’s your story? Is it a series of frustrations and mishaps, or a wonderful tale of success and meaning?
    Parshas Vayakhel

  • Shabbos, March 9 ~ Did Plato Get It Right?

  • DID PLATO GET IT RIGHT?
    Jewish Realism vs. Greek Idealism
    While Plato spoke of the universal - the dreamy ideal without concrete realization - Torah mobilizes us to take action in the here and now. In this class we discover heaven on earth in Judaism’s more sublime sense of idealism, one deeply rooted in reality.
    Parshas Pekuday

  • Shabbos, March 16 ~ Today Is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life

  • TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
    Make the Most of It
    Routine can be boring. A vacation, a surprise visit, a raging concert - now you’re talking! But do you want your job to change every day? Do you like sleeping in a different bed every night? Would you enjoy a new relationship every week? Regardless of your answer, this class is for you.
    Parshas Vayikra

  • Shabbos, March 23 ~ Do It Because You Care

  • DO IT BECAUSE YOU CARE
    Personal Touch Is All the Difference
    Getting a birthday card with no personal message is just a wee bit disappointing. Have you ever done something like that? Have you ever "gotten it done" but without any personal feeling? Join the Jews in the perilous times of Shushanic Purim, and find the tools to inject passion and personality into your otherwise banal behavior.
    Purim

  • Shabbos, March 30 ~ The Day Aaron Argued with Moses

  • THE DAY AARON ARGUED WITH MOSES
    Sorry, You Were Never Meant to Be Perfect
    An odd thing happens in the desert as the Jews commence services in the Tabernacle: Moses and Aaron get into a whole kerfuffle about a burnt goat. True story. What’s the significance of this peculiar debate, and what does it have to do with me?
    Parshas Shemini

  • Shabbos, April 6 ~ Compassionate Condemnation

  • COMPASSIONATE CONDEMNATION
    Love, Love, and Love Some More. Then Criticize
    It can feel pretty good to call someone out for their faults and wrongdoings. As you sit atop your moral high horse, it’s nice to know that you can see evil for what it is. But a curious law in the obscure topic of lepers in the Torah teaches us a radical different approach. An approach grounded in profound compassion and a deep sense of love.
    Parshas Tazria

  • Shabbos, April 13 ~ A Stranger to Passover

  • A STRANGER TO PASSOVER
    Developing a Taste for the Divine
    Not unlike fine wine and whiskey, a taste for G-d needs to be developed. Passover is a time of personal connection, a time to become a real connoisseur of spirituality. This lesson explains how.
