    Where is it Written (Virtual)

    Monday, Jan 25th 11:00a to 12:00p
    “ WHERE IS IT WRITTEN?" Most of us have a strong sense of the values we embrace as Jews. We know that family, the Jewish community, life-long learning, common decency, advocating for social justice, religious practice and observance, supporting the State of Israel, and our Covenant as Jews with each other and with the Divine are important values in Judaism. We know that these values are part of who we are as Jews, but we may not know exactly “Why?” In this course we will study the sacred texts of Jewish life that reveal and support each of these important Jewish values. Our class will meet Monday mornings at 11:00 AM Central Time beginning on January 11, 2021.
