FJC Offers its members another HUC-JIR College Commons Course: Why Bother? Judaism in an Age of Choice

Thursdays throughout March, 2019, 2-4pm in Speen Hall  / FJC Members only / RSVP by March 5

The College Commons takes synagogue learning to the heart of Jewish questions. Last year we explored “Where is God in Reform Judaism?” and this spring we turn to the second offering, “Why Bother? Judaism in an Age of Choice.”  Over a series of sessions, each online course investigates a central Jewish theme through conversations with HUC-JIR scholars and outside experts. “Why Bother? Judaism in an Age of Choice,” is a four-episode online course that helps participants discover and deepen their undstanding of Judaism’s special place in the world. Each episode focuses on a big question about religion and meaning, then it asks that question through the lens of Judaism. The result is a kaleidoscope of new perspectives on Judaisms’ vibrant and unique contributions to society.
