Thinking Jewishly with Rabbi Dina Rosenberg

Join us this year as we explore contemporary issues through a Jewish lens based on the weekly parsha. Together we will “think Jewishly.” No background is required, and drop-ins are welcome as each week’s selection of material and discussion will be in English and stand on its own.

Classes meet on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m.
