JLI - The Jewish Course of Why

JLI - The Jewish Course of Why

  • What happens when you survey 30,000 people, asking them to submit the questions they are most curious about, and address those enigmas with insights from some of the greatest minds in Jewish history?

    That is what we did. The result: The Jewish Course of Why .

    Judaism is known for its rational basis, as a place where questions are freely asked and ideas are freely debated. It is that spirit of questioning and discovery that you will encounter in The Jewish Course of Why .

    Are you ready to give your Judaism the intellection you know it deserves? 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 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 Jews 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.

    The Jewish Course of Why begins Tuesday, February 6 at 7:30-9:00 p.m. and runs for six Tuesdays. The fee for all six weeks is only $99 which includes the cost of the textbook.
    Still wondering "why" you should join The Jewish Course of Why? I invite you to join us for the first session free of charge to see for yourself. Just call us at 206 851 9831 to let us know you're coming.
