Topic-"Free Will"

Women in Jewish Law and Philosophy

Did you ever wonder how Jewish Law and thought deal with women's issues? What does Judaism have to say about feminism, modesty, women's roles, etc? Come and hear what Judaism has to say about these topics and more. Chaya Nebel leads this class every Wednesday at 10:30am. This class is for women only and it is held off-campus. For more details, please call the Midwest Torah Center.

Discovering Aggada

Aggada is one of the most misunderstood part of our Oral tradition. In some schools this entire corpus of Jewish lore is ignored while others will treat it with little respect. Come to the class and find out what the Aggada is, how we are to understand some seemingly outlandish stories and whether or not we need to accept all of them literally. Our main text will be Ein Yaakov. This is a class that you will not want to miss.

Tuesday -10am
