Once again, Jewish Life University is here to give you the tools you need to unlock a rich and meaningful Jewish life!
If you are looking for a way into Judaism and Jewish life; if you are seeking an understanding of Judaism that you missed out on before; if you are looking to fill in the gaps in your knowledge of Judaism and Jewish practice, the Jewish Life University is for you!
Learn from master teacher, Rabbi Johanna Potts, about the core values, texts, ideas, and experiences of Judaism, and how those factors combine in brilliant ways through history, the calendar of time, and through our rituals to shape our lives as Jewish individuals and communities. No previous background in Judaism is required to participate in this program.
Lifelong Learning Fee: $72.00 (per participant) for the entire program.
Dates are November 19, December 3, December 17, January 7, January 21, February 4, February 18 and March 4 at 7 pm.
Looking at our values of social justice, tzedek, tzedakah, and hospitality – welcoming the stranger, we will see the textual bases for these values in Jewish texts over time and how we bring them into our lived Judaism today.
Tefilah, Jewish prayer, can be so meaningful and even transformative when we understand and bring intention to the words that we pray. Come explore the meaning and intentions of Shabbat prayers to gain a deeper understanding of how they connect us with God, with tradition, and with each other. We will look at prayers such as the Shema, the Amida, the Ashrei, Adon Olam, and Kabbalat Shabbat.
