Paired Learning Kick-off Orientation

Come Join Our Paired Learning Study Program

Connect with a friend or family member, near or far, by engaging in an exciting course of Jewish learning that you and your study partner choose.

Kick-off Orientation: Tuesday evening, March 12th @ 8pm

Group Sharing and Celebration: Saturday, June 8th (Erev Shavuot)

10 weeks of study over 12 weeks 

How will each pair study? Any way you want: at home, in a coffee shop, at Bet Torah, or via Skype, Facetime or Google Hangout. If technology is a challenge, we will teach you how to meet face-to-face over the internet so you can study with your partner whether you are 5 miles or 5660 miles apart (New York to Tel Aviv: 5660 miles).

Topics - Each pair selects from one of the following 7 courses • Bob Dylan: A Jewish Journey Between Home And Exile • Shabbat Rituals: The Oldest New Way to Friday (4 sessions) • Judaism: Identity, Pluralism And Peoplehood • I Can't Believe It: What God, Prophecy, And Free Will Meant In The Past - And What They Can Mean To Us • Am I Responsible?: An Exploration Of Jewish And Human Responsibility • Kashrut: Why? What? How? • The Balancing Act: Being A Jewish Parent (4 sessions)

Cost - $36 to $180 per person, depending on what you feel you are able to pay (Made out to Bet Torah, with “Paired Learning” in the memo).
