Education Hub: Term 4 course details (22 May – 19 June)

Education Hub details

Liberal Judaism’s Education Hub returns for a fourth term on Wednesday nights from May 22, with an eclectic range of courses to choose from.

An Introduction to Judaism & Biblical Hebrew with Rabbis Janet Burden and Danny Rich is perfect for those who want to learn about Judaism and its traditions.

The first half of the class will cover basic Hebrew, and the second half will look at different Jewish principles, holidays and traditions. No previous knowledge or experience is required and you can attend for one week or all of them.

Rabbi Charley Baginsky’s popular monthly theology sessions continue with Judaism and Theodicy: Post Holocaust Theology on 29 May and Reasons to Believe: Can We Rationalise a Belief in God? on 12 June.

We are also delighted to welcome Rabbi Thomas Salamon to the Education Hub. Thomas, of Westminster Synagogue, will be leading a four-week course from 29 May titled Caribbean Jews and the Jewish Pirates – How did an Ashkenazi Jew Learn to Love the Sephardi Jew and their Traditions?

All classes take place on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm, including a 20 minute break, at the Montagu Centre. An optional Ma’ariv (evening) service will begin at 6:30pm.

In a first for Liberal Judaism, an online course on Biblical Hebrew will also run via Zoom on Tuesday nights at 7-8pm from 4 June.

The weekly interactive course will be led by Rabbi Lea Mühlstein of Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue. Participants should know the Hebrew letters but do not need to have prior knowledge of Hebrew as a language. More advanced students can join the course at a later stage.

The book required for the class – The First Hebrew Primer – is available separately for £34.95 and available from Manor House Books.

For questions or more details on this course, please contact Lea on rabbilea@npls.org.uk. A 20% discount on the cost of the course is available for NPLS members.
