Judaism is hands on, practical and detail orientated. As Jews, we want to know what to do and how to do it. We love our history and rituals. Our culture and art are everywhere. However, this leads most us to learn our Judaism piecemeal. We learn about weddings before we have one. We learn about keeping kosher when we set up our kitchen. We read parts of the Torah each week, but rarely have the opportunity to take a step back to look at the big picture.
If you’ve ever felt lost in the beautiful woods of Judaism, the Boundless Judaism program will help. If you’ve ever wondered how it all fits together, this is for you. Judaism is a mosaic made up of millions of pieces but they are not placed randomly. Each and every piece fits perfectly according to the larger themes, values and goals of our faith. This course, by starting with a bird’s eye view of these values during each session, brings all the pieces together more clearly. We’ll erase the borders between text, ritual, history, ethics and culture until Judaism becomes the seamless whole it was meant to be.
If you are new to Judaism or Jewish learning, this will give you a framework to sort all your new experiences and ideas you come across. If you are a lifelong learner looking for a little more structure, this will help you see the patterns and connections like never before. Each session is self contained, but the more you attend, the more sense Judaism will make.
