NEW SPIRITUALITY PROGRAMS AT THE UJC 5776



Exciting new adult education opportunities are coming for 5776, but you don't have to wait that long. Study over the summer. (That's what the cool kids are doing.)

One Congregation/One Book will return in October. We will be reading Simon Schama's The Story of the Jews: Finding the Words-100BC-1492AD. Get yourself a copy (available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book) and dive into this fascinating exploration of Jewish history. Click here to order the book through Amazon.

In a year-long series called Jewish Questions/Jewish Answers we will examine how our tradition can help us navigate the most difficult ethical issues of our time. Our texts for this class will mainly be responsa, answers to real-life questions posed to prominent Rabbinic authorities. You can't study ahead for this class, but have a look at this article by Rabbi Mark Washofsky, chair of the Responsa Committee of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, for a taste of the kind of literature we will be working with next year. Click here to look at the article.

We will also have a Biblical Hebrew class in the coming year. Join us to learn some fundamentals of the grammar and vocabulary of the TaNaKH. This class will begin in the winter. Yes, that is a long time to wait. Why not get the textbook we will be using now? The book is called The First Hebrew Primer: The Adult Beginner's Path to Biblical Hebrew (Third Edition). It is available from Amazon and from the publisher.

Study a bit from the First Hebrew Primer this summer. The book is designed to be used for self-instruction. Nothing says "summer vacation" like Hebrew verb forms.

Enjoy the summer. Everyone deserves some dumb fun. Don't, however, miss the opportunity to do some learning during the dog days. And watch Shabbat Shalom for details of our exciting adult education offerings for the 2015-6 UJC year.Stay tuned for the information of the new program.
