Jewish Essentials: A spiritual Guide to Jewish Life and Living

  • The Jewish Essentials Course is an eight week introduction to the foundations of Jewish life. Blending the spiritual and the practical, it is a journey from our historical roots to its contemporary application, presented through textual and practical demonstration of some of the most essential elements of active Jewish life.

    Beginning with an overview of the role and significance of Torah and the Mitzvot of our lives, the Essentials Course proceeds to display how each of the practical Mitzvot plays its role in positively transforming the world to bring its Divine source to the fore.
