The Jewish Learning Institute of Sudbury will be offering What Is? Rethinking Everything We Know about Our Universe—a fascinating, new six-session course (Tuesday evenings) from the International Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).
The website description of the course reads: Drawing on the wisdom of Chasidic teaching, the most basic building blocks of existence are reexamined from the bottom up, revolutionizing our understanding of life, reality and our place in the world.
“I find that many people are looking to deepen their experience of life,” said Rabbi Freeman of Chabad of Sudbury, who will be teaching the class. “This JLI course invites participants to live more deeply, by deepening their thinking, insight and awareness of the fundamentals of life and of our universe.”
What Is? explores six of the most intriguing questions that have ever challenged mankind: Is the world real? Is time travel possible? Why does evil exist? Who is God? What is consciousness? Are we bound by fate?
“Our goal is to invite participants to seek out a deeper understanding of their world,” explained Rabbi Freeman. “By doing so, we hope to give people the tools to experience a richer, deeper and more meaningful life.”
Like all JLI programs, this course is designed to appeal to people at all levels of knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple or other house of worship.
