MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will present the The Jewish Course of Why starting Feb. 22.
“No religion is known for its rational basis and its welcoming of questions and intellectual debate quite like Judaism," said Rabbi Zalman Abraham. “In preparing for the course, we turned to over 30,000 people who each submitted their biggest questions about Judaism. We then selected the most popular among them and addressed each one with resonant insights from the greatest minds in Jewish history.”
The course covers topics such as Jews in Hollywood, culinary traditions and customs, the sanctioning of slavery and animal sacrifices in the Bible, the cause of antisemitism and more.
Rabbi Mendel Silberstein of Chabad of Larchmont and Mamaroneck will conduct the six-session course beginning Feb. 22. through March 27.
“We’re excited to be offering this fun and dynamic learning experience here in Larchmont and Mamaroneck,” said Rabbi Silberstein, the local JLI instructor in Larchmont. “The Jewish Course of Why gives our participants the opportunity to expand their Jewish knowledge and intellectualize their Judaism by exploring rational insights into the most intriguing questions that Jews have today.”
The course is open to people of all levels of prior Jewish knowledge. An affiliation with a particular synagogue, temple or other house of worship is not required.
