Meaningful Jewish Living, a year-long course in the foundations of Judaism transcends academic knowledge to show how Judaism is alive and celebrated in the modern world. Taught by Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz, Rabbi Roy Feldman, Rabbi Meyer Laniado and Rabbi Daniel and Rachel Kraus, as well as guest presenters is a comprehensive, year-long course covering major themes in Jewish law, practice and thought. Explore how a 5,500 year old religion is more relevant today than ever before.
