Torah in a New Light

The Beginning of Jewish Ideas

Through an examination of selected Torah texts, we will discover the origin of the ideas that shaped, and still shape, 2500 years of Jewish life. Rather than focus on a religious interpretation of Torah, our approach will based on the belief that understanding the origin and evolution of Jewish ideas can help us interpret their meaning and relevance in our time.

Learners of all faiths, backgrounds, and perspectives are welcome. All you need bring is your curiosity. For those experienced with Jewish learning, this course’s focus on text should provide a deeper investigation into some of these familiar texts.

Please note: classes are conducted virtually by Zoom.
