Throughout Jewish history, movements have arisen to challenge mainstream Judaism (i.e. Christianity/ Karaites/ Sabbatians/ Frankists/ Reform movement 1750/ Habad Messianism). How has Judaism changed, and when has it refused to change, in response to these movements? When has Judaism been reactionary, and when has it been inclusive? What have been the criteria for determining what is kept inside, as opposed to outside?
More about the Program
The mother-daughter relationship is an essential part of preparing teenage girls for keeping the mitzvoth and their formative world. We will focus on seven important mitzvoth and learn how they bring us closer to Hashem, to parents, friends and the community at large. Each class consists of three parts –introduction of the topic and raising pertinent questions; source-based mother & daughter chevruta learning and discussion; creative group discussion and activity (writing, drama, etc.).
- קידוש החודש: Sanctity of time in religious life, and role of rabbis in determining Halacha.
- ונשמרתם מאוד לנפשותיכם: Care of our bodies, the value of maintaining good health, Halachic attitude to piercing, tattoos, etc..
- Our religious responsibilities toward others (respect for our parents, love others as we love ourselves, Kiddush Hashem and Chillul Hashem)
A good level of Hebrew is required as well as an interest in textual study.
Price for the series: NIS 590 per mother-daughter pair.
