The Hebrew College-Congregation Mishkan Tefila Learning Series is back with winter offerings, including the upcoming Jewish Spirituality Series with an opportunity to study with three Hebrew College faculty members. Join Rabbis Arthur Green, Nehemia Polen and Ariel Mayse in February as they examine loving and learning from Hasidism while choosing to live outside the world of the contemporary Hasidic community. Decide which of the many riches of Hasidic teachings might usefully be applied today as we re-tool and universalize Hasidism. Examine a Judaism that is spiritually alive. Attend one, two or all three programs.

Hebrew College’s Rabbi Ebn Leader (top right) will be delivering an introduction to the series at Mishkan Tefila on Jan. 29 from 9:30-10:15 at their Adult Learning Summit.
