NEW in January 2023!
“Together & Apart: The Future of Jewish Peoplehood”

Sundays at 12:00pm, January 8, February 12, March 12 at 10:15am, April 2 *In Person Only*
Adult Ed is once again offering this exciting program through the esteemed Shalom Hartman Institute. The program addresses the complex features of Jewish peoplehood and the contemporary challenges to the Jewish people in an era in which we have moved from having no home to having two different, vibrant, homes in Israel and North America. The 14 unit program will be compressed into 10 in person sessions at CBI led by Rabbi Fliegel. We’ll conduct 4 sessions over the winter and spring and complete the course with 6 sessions in the fall. Participants are expected to watch the approximately one hour video prior to our meetings and there are also recommended but non-essential short readings for those interested in an even deeper dive into the subject matter. The cost for the course (all 10 sessions) is $50 per person. All sessions will be on Sundays and run for 90 minutes. Our sessions in January and February include lunch. To sign up, please contact Mike Honor at mhonor205@gmail.com or Roberta Tansman at roberta.tansman@gmail.com.
