Join the Vilna Shul for a series of discussion and learning that focuses on “What Do Jews Believe”.  This course, based on David Ariel’s book of the same name, provides an introduction to what Jews believe about God, human character, good and evil, Torah, prayer, religious observance, peoplehood, and the Messiah. It will look at the development of Jewish ideas in the Bible, Talmud, Madras, Kabbalah, Jewish philosophy, and modern Jewish thought.

This adult learning group is being taught by Dr. David Ariel at the Vilna Shul on  Tuesday evenings from May 3 – June 7 from 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM.

Although the course is meant to be a unified experience, each session is “free standing” so missing one or two is OK..

$192 for course (6 sessions).
