The first year students take two classes, Purposes and Rhythms.

  • Purposes explores the big questions from a variety of perspectives, questions such as: Why are we here? Why do people suffer? What happens after we die?
  • Rhythms covers the Jewish life cycle and calendar. This is a course for adults – it will not be a repeat of Sunday school. And no matter whether you attended Sunday school, day school, or have no Jewish schooling, you will learn quite a bit.

Second year students take Dramas and Ethics.

  • Ethics explores the ethical issues of interpersonal relationships, sexuality, aging, death, family, and community using Torah, Talmud, and classical and modern commentaries.
  • Dramas probes themes relevant to Jewish life today across time and throughout the Jewish world. Themes include assimilation, community, anti-semitism, and memory.
