Temple Beth Shalom is excited to be hosting Me’ah Classic—a journey through the narrative of the Jewish people—beginning in October 2017.

This will be the only such program in Cambridge/Somerville; a side benefit of the rich learning will be the building of a micro-community. The shared two-year experience of learning with exemplary instructors, each experts in their respective fields/historic periods, is not easily found once one is out of college or graduate school. And while there are recommended readings, there is no homework or testing!

Me’ah (Hebrew for 100) is led by outstanding faculty from Greater Boston academic institutions, who are attuned to the needs of adult learners.  Reading, text study, lectures and discussions are combined to develop a rich experience for the community of learners who share this two-year journey together.

During Year One, Me’ah Classic participants delve into core Hebrew Bible and rabbinic texts that are the very the basis of Jewish beliefs, behaviors and community. During Year Two, participants journey through medieval and modern periods, exploring the philosophy, poetry, and thought that reflect each era’s unique social and cultural themes and inter-relationships.

What our participants say:

  • “I loved the instructors exuberance, her enthusiasm for the subject…she helped me to discover Torah, the nuanced meanings behind the words!”
  • “I had a chance to think about Judaism, to revisit “facts” and myths I had learned as a child, and to put them in perspective as they apply to my current life.”
  • “Me’ah has truly been a wonderful experience for me-academically, spiritually, and socially.”
