A Celebration of Jewish Ideas: God, Torah and Israel
Who are we and what are our values? This question is at the foundation of Jewish culture, tradition and belief. Our identity and values ultimately flow from three great ideas: God, Torah and Israel. From ancient times to today, these are the most lasting and significant ideas that we celebrate, debate and study. Without any one of these three ideas, Judaism
could, not have survived and thrived throughout the ages. But what did each idea mean to the sages and what do they mean to us? Through a series of lively, inspiring, and challenging sessions, we will engage each of these great ideas by studying ancient and modern texts, interpretations, prayers and poetry. In each session we will study sacred
texts and focus on the core questions our Sages asked and raise our own contemporary questions as well.
