Education for Adults

Gabriel Webber co-leading Judaism 101 with Deborah Blausten

Student Rabbi Gabriel Webber who leads 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 for account details.)

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

Please note: each session is stand alone – feel free to dip in and out as the topic interest you.


Venue: Monthly on the third Thursday, 7-9pm in the Garden Room, Friargate Meeting House, unless otherwise specified.


All our educational activities are made possible by the extremely generous support of the NLPS Trust
