Judaism has plenty to offer us in terms of resilience, health and living well. We have spiritual practices and an obligation to learn regularly, we have a philosophy around food and materialism and we value silence and acts of kindness over excess verbiage. We also have lots to help us think about relationships and caring for family. This newest and ground-breaking course will offer a structure for you to embrace Jewish values, teachings and practices into your lives.
The course consists of three Streams (Aleph, Bet and Gimmel). To progress to Bet and Gimmel you must complete Aleph which we’re running for the first time this year.
There will be six sessions over the course of the year which will introduce texts and ideas from our Jewish tradition and preceded by light supper and refreshments at 7:30pm. The course costs £150 for the year.
11 September – Planning for Change
13 November – Focus on Spiritual Practice
15 January – Building Relationships
4 March – Giving and Receiving
13 May – Health and Well-Being
24 June – Food and Materialism
Sessions will be facilitated by Rabbi Janes and experts in the field and will finish at 9:45pm.
You will also be given a journal with readings and exercises to complete and access to online materials.
In addition the course will be accompanied by two more regular courses because regular learning is an important part of the personal growth that is at the heart of the course. You can choose one or both of these regular courses (Magic of Midrash and Insights from Pirke Avot).
