Is it Kosher?

with Rabbi Evan Ravski
Wednesdays, October 28th, November 4th, and November 11th, 6:30pm.
“Is that kosher?” We believe the answer will be yes or no, yet, when we look at the laws of kashrut, from its roots in the Torah to its practice today, we find that kosher standards have changed over generations. Over three classes – one each on the themes of dairy, meat, and parve – we will explore how these categories were understood throughout history, the laws that each category must follow to be kosher, and how these standards have evolved over time.  Click here to join.


Patterns and Repetitions in Tanach with Rabbi Ravski

with Rabbi Evan Ravski
Wednesdays, January 6th, 13th, 20th at 6:30pm
Have you ever read a part of the Bible and felt like “I’ve read this already”? Over the course of this class, we will examine, study and discuss various parts of the Tanach when the text repeats itself. We will explore how these repetitions develop into patterns and how the differences in the repetitions impact our understanding of each text.  Click here to join.

"While we, as an organization and nation focus on the issues of Coronavirus, FJMC has launched a number of virtual sessions which cover a wide range of topics.  We know that many of us have been asked to work from home, have additional time to fill and this is a great time to learn more about something useful and interesting.  Here's a link to the schedule."
