Torah from the Beginning: Why Torah? Who wrote it? What is my Torah? 
Wednesdays, October 22 - December 10, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Instructors: Rabbi Josh Brown and Dan Gilbert
This class will explore Torah, how the Torah influences us even when we might not be aware and ways in which it impacts who we are as a community. This class will include text study and reflection and an opportunity to create “Your Torah” - a personalized compilation of values and stories that make you the person you are. The later part of this course is an experiment building our own version of Story Corps heard on NPR. We’ll have the chance to create and share media projects that share our stories. You do not need any special technology or skills for this project. Contact Director of Lifelong Learning This email address is being protected from spambots.

Music in Transition (a continuation from last year)
Thursdays, October 23 - December 18, 10 a.m.
No class on Thursday, November 27

Instructor: Cantor Wendy Shermet
In this section, we will compare and contrast all the Jewish music that is available to us today, from oral tradition to videos on YouTube. Cantor Shermet will discuss how music goes through transition and that
everything old becomes new again. Music is Mishnah in which people present their own ideas of the text through their compositions. We will continue our work from last year. Contact Director of Lifelong Learning This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for questions.
