Rabbi Ruth Adar has just announced her online Introduction to Judaism class. This segment is called, "Jewish Holidays and Lifecycle."
This eight-week online course will introduce you to:
- The major and minor Jewish holidays
- Jewish lifecycle rituals, from birth to death
Tuition: Sliding scale of $240 – $144. Scholarships available.
Platform: I teach the class using Zoom meeting software. You will be able to access your class meeting using a link in the email invitation you receive after registration.
To Register: Go to the HaMaqom website (formerly Lehrhaus Judaica), and look at the class page.
Texts: Settings of Silver, by Stephen Wylen. The book is available both new and used. I use this text because it contains a history and an excellent index; when you’ve finished the class it makes a nice reference book if you choose to keep it.
