Join us for one or all of the exciting Adult Education classes available at Temple Judea.
December 11th - 9:30 AM - Israel: Bridging the Divide with Rabbi Judith Siegal
The American Jewish conversation on Israel needs a makeover, suggests Dr. David Myers, Professor of Jewish History at the University of California, Los Angeles. Weigh in as we listen to his position and get a glimpse into unexpected takes on Israel today.
February 26th, March 5th, 12, 19th - 7:30 PM iEngage: Values and Conflict - A project of the Shalom Hartman Institute with Rabbis Judith Siegal and Daniel Young
Explore one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in the Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Through a common political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences. This program is made possible with thanks to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, CAJE-Miami and Targum Shlishi.
