JUST SAY KNOW! LISA F. BRILL INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH LEARNING
Know Judaism when you sign up for one of the Lisa F. Brill Institute for Jewish Learning continuing education classes. From sex in the Torah to how to parent/grandparent Jewishly, our class topics are as varied as our many location offerings. Please check out our new classes that have shorter time commitments for those of you with busy work/personal schedules. The Brill Institute is also proud to welcome back many of your favorite teachers. Our goal is to make it as convenient and interesting as possible for you to 'Know Judaism.' Have you read the New Testament? Why not?! Are you afraid that it's anti-Semitic? Studying these texts can actually help Jews to appreciate their own identity more deeply. Most Jews and Christians would be surprised to learn just how thoroughly Jewish Jesus was, and how his Jewishness permeates the New Testament. In this class we will learn about the intertwined histories of Judaism and Christianity, how the two traditions came to a parting of the ways,\nwhy the Jews rejected Jesus and how we can use our new knowledge to strengthen interfaith relations. This class is for Jews and Christians!
Instructor: Dr. Steven Chervin
