Living a Jewish Year
Part of the Exploring Judaism umbrella of adult courses, Living a Jewish Year is our entry-level exploration. This class delves into each of the Jewish holidays in real time, offering historical perspective, multiple entryways into celebration, and guided ritual and spiritual experience. Some time is also spent on what it means to observe Sabbath, including a communal Friday evening meal. No prerequisites are required.
