JEWISH JOURNEYS - TAKING THE NEXT STEP
What is Jewish Journeys all about? First, it’s about developing skills and taking your knowledge to the next level. The first skill we’ll be focused on will be further developing your Hebrew. After all, so much of Jewish life involves the Hebrew Language. Perhaps most importantly, we’ll be focused on Hebrew as the language of prayer. By learning basic prayers, you’ll be amazed at how much more comfortable you’ll feel when attending services.
Another essential aspect of Jewish Life is that of the Jewish Holidays. Think of this part of the course as a “How To” guide to the holidays. We’ll be developing skills that will enable you to conduct important aspects of observance of Shabbat, Pesah, Sukkot and Hanukkah right in your own home.
Finally, we’ll be examining the “Big Picture” and seeing what Judaism has to say about the “Big Issues” of our day. Issues will include such topics as The Environment, Crime & Punishment, War & Peace, Business Ethics, Poverty, LGBTQ Issues, Judaism & Islam in the 21st Century, Israel & the Middle East, Bio- Medical Ethics and Gun Control. And maybe we’ll fit in one or two others!
So this is the time to take that next step. For further information, contact Program Administrator Ellen Nesson at (973) 214-4553 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Instructor Rabbi Akiba Lubow at (908) 451-7253 or email@example.com; or check out our website at introjudaismnj.com.
We’ll be looking forward to taking this journey together!
