Fall soul study at the YM-YWHA

The Rohr Jewish Institute will hold its fall course, “Soul- Quest: The Journey Through Life, Death and Beyond,” starting Tuesday, Nov. 6

The course will be held on six Tuesdays through Dec. 8 at the Riverdale YM-YWHA, located at 5625 Arlington Ave.

“Sooner or later, everybody must reckon with questions of their own mortality,” said Rabbi Levi Shemtov, spritual leader of Chabad-Lubavitch of Riverdale and director of the Riverdale chapter of JLI, in a statement.

Organizers promise that the course will deal with questions that have long fascinated and mystified many and look at the day-to-day ramifications of their answers. Lessons will examine classic Jewish sources, especially the Talmud and Kabbalah.

Rabbi Shemtov will teach the course, which costs $20 per class or $100 for all six. The price includes a textbook. Scholarships are available.
