Recurring Event Event Series: Why? Of Course! (The Jewish course of why)

Why? Of Course! (The Jewish course of why)

November 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Are you prepared to tackle the quizzical, queer, and seemingly-unanswerable questions about Jewish belief and practice? Then signup today for The Jewish Course of Why. The course is open to all – Jewish and non-Jewish – and meets conveniently before Maj in the senior lounge.

“The topics of this course span a diverse range, from fun, light, and off-the-beaten-track questions, to more complex and controversial issues. Ever wondered why there are so many Jews in Hollywood? Why do Jewish individuals eat gefilte fish and cholent and wish each other mazal tov and l’chaim? Why the Bible sanctions slavery and animal sacrifices? What is the cause of antisemitism? What does Judaism say about Christianity? About the role of women in Jewish life? You will also gain insight into mysterious Jewish practices, strange biblical narratives, and enigmas of Jewish identity.” Course created by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute and presented by Rabbi Yossi Friedman.

Lunch can be ordered from Bo’s Kosher Cafe. 205-960-1226 or tesbarber@hotmail.com
