UNIVERSITY SYNAGOGUE ADULT EDUCATION 


 

1) PRIVATE TUTORIAL WITH RABBI RACHLIS  
Rabbi Rachlis will teach any University Synagogue member anything that he/she wants to learn. Just set up an appointment; he’ll give you a syllabus, and you’ll meet with him approximately once a month.  


2) BASIC JUDAISM AND BEYOND (SEMESTER 2 2024)
Who are “the Jews”? What do we collectively and individually believe or not believe? This class gathers small communities of learners to de-mystify Judaism through discussions about who Jews are philosophically, theologically, ritually, historically and religiouslyWe hope to attract students who have never been exposed to this material as well as those who might want to explore these areas again. We welcome those who are considering conversion. We encourage sharing experiences. We will compare and contrast approaches to Judaism to see how we are the same and different. We view many aspects of Jewish rituals and practices including the celebration of Jewish holidays and life cycle rituals (from a liberal and Reconstructionist lens) to better understand why we do what we do, how it has evolved and what it means to us today. As time permits, we will explore “What Judaism Says” about current topics of the day. This class will be held on Zoom and in person in the synagogue library. A syllabus will be forthcoming.
