Jewish History Course Offered This Spring at JLI - "Judaism Decoded" to focus on long-standing traditions.

Posted Monday, Apr 20th, 2015

 The unique formula that has sustained Jewish tradition for many years is the subject of a spring course presented by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute this year.

Judaism Decoded: The Origins and Evolution of Jewish Tradition will begin on May 5 at the JLI, according to a community post on the Glenview Announcements.

Rabbi Meir Moscowitz of Lubavitch Chabad of Northbrook will conduct the six course sessions at 10am - 11:30am and at 7:30pm - 9pm on Tuesday May 5 at 2095 Landwehr Rd., Northbrook.

“Just as science follows the scientific method, Judaism has its own system to ensure authenticity remains intact,” explains Rabbi Zalman Abraham of JLI’s New York headquarters. “We wanted to shed light on the mystery that surrounds biblical interpretations. This really is an eye-opening course.”

With the world changing at a rapid pace, Judaism Decoded tackles the intricate questions of whether rabbis can unilaterally change Torah, and how Jewish tradition reacts to new circumstances and modern-day dilemmas.
