Tuesday Oct. 3 JUDAISM’S SELDOM-SHARED BIG IDEAS
If someone asks “What do Jews believe?” we all know to answer, “In one God.” Is that really all there is? Not by a long shot. Our principles on things like afterlife, faith, sexuality, why we are here, and sin are pretty unique and often quite uplifting!
Wednesday, Nov. 15 CONFRONTING LIFE’S LITTLE DILEMMAS
People don’t often realize that Torah is a useful tool to help deal with life’s challenges. We’ll examine every day dilemmas and the choices we make about things like shopping, disclosing information, and even enjoying a scotch. We will learn how looking through Jewish lenses can help us deal and act. At the hour’s end, attendees will have a familiarity with some important Jewish lessons about lying, organ donation, giving references, swimming and more.
Monday, Dec. 11 HOW TO ARGUE JEWISHLY
Poisonous rhetoric is spreading everywhere, even to the dinner table and that’s a very Jewish subject. Our sages spent a lot of time discussing civil discourse. Yet, for each of us personally, it can be hard to be persuasive, yet civil. In this session, we’ll talk about how to drive home a point without proving that the other person is wrong or making her feel stupid. We’ll learn how to put into action some techniques that can make this world a better place.
