Taught by Rabbi JoHanna Potts
Come explore the rich fabric of Judaism! Using traditional texts and modern examples, we will cover the fundamentals of Jewish life, including Shabbat and holidays, prayer, lifecycle rituals, ethics, and beliefs. This class is ideal for learners with questions—whether you’ve never studied Judaism before in your life, you’re looking for a Hebrew School refresher, or you’re somewhere in between!
Mondays, April 19-May 3
Taught by Melissa Werbow
“Instruct them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments“ (Numbers 15:38). Why do we wear tallit? What does gender have to do with it? Dive deep into the tallit, explore the rich texts surrounding these ritual objects with local educator Melissa Werbow, and then design and create your tallit and tie your own fringes!
