“Finding WHY is a process of discovery, not invention.” - Simon Sinek.
Course Description :
Together we will embark upon a journey of discovery through inquiry as we explore Judaism’s biggest questions and how they impact the way we understand ourselves and engage with the world around us. Questions such as: Who or what is God? Why do we call ourselves the Chosen People? What role does identity play in Judaism? Are miracles an act of God? How do we explain the Holocaust? What do we believe about the Messiah? Is there an afterlife? And others which organically emerge through challenging discourse and digging! This course will provide a rich context to share, explore, and engage with Jewish perspectives, frames, and texts as a foundation for intentionally designing meaning and purpose in our lives.
