The Prophets of Ancient Israel

with Dr. Michael Kogan, Monday at 7:30pm

The class is now studying the prophet Ezekiel. Texts are examined from a scholarly point of view, asking when, where and why these immortal texts were written, and engaging in a close reading of the contents. With both Jewish and Christian students enrolled, interpretations of these shared texts are presented from both faiths, encouraging students to come to their own conclusions as to their ultimate meaning.

Chanukah on Chanukah

with Rabbi Ravski, Wednesdays at 7:00pm (Nov 3, 10, 17)

The most publicly visible and celebrated holiday of the Jewish Year is Chanukah, yet the many traditions, foods, songs and rituals are rarely studied beyond our childhood Jewish education.

Together we will explore the real story behind the holiday, how all the rituals and traditions developed to create the Chanukah that we all know and love and the best ways to use our Olive Oil!
