14 sessions – Thursdays | January 28-May 6 | 7-8pm

There is a Talmudic tale: A person came up to the first century sage, Rabbi Hillel, and asked to convert to Judaism on the condition that Hillel could teach them the entire Torah as they stood on one foot. So Hillel taught them: “”That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah, all the rest is commentary, now, go and learn it.”” (Talmud Bavli Shabbat 31a). Now that you know the basics, put your other foot down and join us for a three month exploration of Jewish fundamentals!
This class is for anyone who wants to learn about Judaism. While it is not a class specifically for those who are considering becoming Jewish, it is a good place to start. All are welcome.
Taught by Rabbi Carolyn Braun and TBE’s Rabbinic Intern Lorin Troderman (Hebrew College). Please complete your registration by January 25; we will only be sending the Zoom link out to registered participants. Pricing is $140 for an individual and $210 for a couple. We ask that all participants register separately, even if you are paying together.
