Thursday 1st June: Judaism 101, Call and Response

The next Judaism 101 is on Thursday 1st June with Gabriel Webber.  The title for the session is “Call and Response: Jewish responses to dilemmas“.

Gabriel explains:

“If you visit AskMoses.com you’ll find all sorts of discussions about what Jewish law has to say on, for instance, the rules of Shabbat and the little light that comes on when you open the fridge. But Progressive Jews also go to their rabbis with dilemmas and there is a huge body of modern responsa dealing with genuine modern dilemmas.  This session will explore a few of them – on topics selected by you!”

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
