Thursday 29th June: Judaism 101, Judaism around the World

The next Judaism 101 is on Thursday 29th June .  The title for the session is “Judaism around the world” and it is a final opportunity to study with out excellent student Rabbi Deborah Blausten before she moves on from this placement.  Deborah says:

“Wherever you go, there’s always someone Jewish”, or so goes a popular Jews childrens song. This week we’ll get to know the stories of some of the world’s Jewish communities, including the incredible story of soviet Jewry, the Ethiopian and North African communities, the Indian Bene Israel and the hidden Jews of Spanish speaking countries.”

Sessions are open to everyone – whether completely new to Judaism, exploring, or ready for a refresher – and each session of Judaism 101 stands alone, so you can come to a whole term or a single session, dependent on the topic.

Together they will help you to build a strong foundation of Jewish knowledge and experience, based around study of sacred texts, holidays and Jewish theology.

Attendance is free, but those that can 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.)
Venue:  Room A/005, Derwent College, University of York, 7pm-9pm
