Hollywood Temple Beth El hosts summer series on Judaism
Hollywood Temple Beth El will hold a summer Basic Judaism 101 series beginning on June 25 and running for 10 consecutive Saturdays from 11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
The course provides an overview of the main concepts, values and practices of Judaism.
Rabbi Norbert Weinberg will lead the classes.
“A scoffer once challenged the great sage, Hillel, ‘Teach me all about Judaism while I stand on one leg.’ Hillel, knowing full well that his leg was being pulled, answered, ‘What you can’t stand, don’t do to your fellow. The rest is commentary. Now, go and learn.’ This course is intended as the learning part of Hillel’s retort, and people are welcome, whether they are Talmud scholars, pure novices or adherents of any religion or none,” Weinberg said.
The course will be taught from the outlook of historic Jewish teachings, with a contemporary perspective and application. The sessions will be held in person at the Temple, 1317 N. Crescent Drive, and live-streamed on facebook.com/htbel/live and youtube.com/channel/UCUIqJSPikcnCs0-7vD2PWww.
