Judaism 101

Judaism 101 is York Liberal Jewish Community’s adult education series.

It is open to all, member and non-members, those seeking to learning about Judaism from a standing start, and those simply wishing to reignite their interest and top up their knowledge.   In the past year we have covered the “how and why” of most of the main festivals, as well as sessions on Jewish attitudes to sexual ethics, the importance of social action and approaches to assisted dying.

Attendance is free, but those that can afford to and non-members are encouraged to make a small donation (£5? a session or £25 for the term) in accordance with their ability to pay.   Donations can be made on the night or direct to the York Liberal Jewish Community account (email info@jewsinyork.org.uk for account details.)

The Spring series is co-led by our new student rabbi, Deborah Blausten and by Gabriel Webber. You can view the schedule  here.
