How Jewish Law and Tradition Develops Through the Ages

From commandments engraved in stone to microchips in our eyewear and self-driving

cars, a lot can change in 3,000 years. Yet the elemental questions about our tradition

remain the same. Do we have any evidence that the Bible text is divine and true? Who

has the right to interpret the Bible? And how do we adapt its laws to modern times and

changing influences?

The answers to these questions are addressed in Dynamic Wisdom. This interactive course

will intrigue and inspire as you explore the history and development of Jewish law and

tradition.

The Gift of the Jews

Revolutionary Ideas Judaism Introduced to the World

The Ten Commandments constitute an ethical core that has guided Jewish experience

for three thousand years. Yet they have had influence far beyond Jewish life. The Ten

Commandments are widely acknowledged as the bedrock of most religions, legal systems

and ethical codes of the Western world. In this new series you will discover why.

Examine the core values that guide a moral society. Debate opposing principles as you

consider self vs. others, truth vs. kindness, making the most of now vs. sacrificing for future

goals. Challenge your assumptions about the definition of a good society as you investigate

the key issues that confront us as individuals, Jews, and members of the global community.

Tanya’s Guide to Living a Not-So-Ordinary Life

Once upon a time, every book was about being perfect. Every book told you, “This is how

you are supposed to be; now go and be that.”

Then Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of the Chabad movement, wrote a book

for the rest of us, called Tanya. It’s the first book of Kabbalistic enlightenment for everyone,

charting a practical roadmap for higher living.

Join us as we study Tanya and discover for ourselves how ordinary people can indeed lead

extraordinary lives.

Jewish Ethics
Jewish Ethics

The Life-Elevating Wisdom of Pirkei Avot

Pirkei Avot—”Ethics of the Fathers”—is a veritable treasure-trove of wisdom, a nearly two

thousand year old guide for self-refinement and character development. This masterpiece

of Jewish ethics is a collection of valuable advice from the sages of antiquity concerning

basic life-skills such as exercising leadership, dealing with others, and personal character

refinement.

This six week course takes a practical and relevant approach in studying this celebrated

text. We examine the wisdom of Pirkei Avot through the lens of the classical commentators

as well as the Kabbalists, to gain an even more profound understanding of its many life-
lessons.
