Ancient Wisdom on Modern Questions: Upcoming Classes

Ancient Wisdom on Modern Questions: a Series or Single Classes for Adults

Today’s social and political divisiveness is virtually unprecedented. However, we have resources in Jewish tradition that address any of these issues, and the larger questions of how we get along and divide as a society. Join us for a class that speaks honestly openly and deeply about issues.  Rabbi Shavit Lonstein and other like-minded adults will gather to embark on an adventure of mind and spirit as we explore spirituality and Jewish wisdom. Find out how much Judaism can speak to our deepest questions.

Classes can be joined as drop-in or the series:
