Introduction to Hassidut

Instructor: Dena Weiss

(Tuition $200 / Reduced Tuition $100*)


We will be exploring many of the principal personalities in early Hassidic life and the major themes that appear in Hassidic thought. Each week we'll encounter a new teacher and a new philosophy. We’ll explore the roles of study, prayer, Faith and Doubt, among others and try to apply those lessons to our daily lives. What are our religious and spiritual values? What are our challenges? How can we think about old problems in new ways?

Encountering the Rambam's Theology

January 24th - April 4th

Thursdays 3:15pm - 4:45pm

Instructor: Laynie Soloman

(Tuition $200 / Reduced Tuition $100*)


What must Jews believe? What role can and should the Torah play in constructing a Jewish theology? Can thought, emotion, and theology be legislated by halakha? These questions are at the heart of the Rambam's "Laws of the Foundations of the Torah" (Hilkhot Yesodei HaTorah) which begins his magnum opus of Jewish law--the Mishneh Torah. Using this text as a guide, we will explore these questions and take a deep dive into the Rambam's picture of the foundational beliefs that animate Jewish life and thought.
