SUNDAYS WITH THE RAMBAM
Ongoing Sunday morning study of two classics of rabbinic literature by the great medieval philosopher Moses Maimonides (the “Rambam”). Prof. Norbert Samuelson, Grossman Chair of Jewish Philosophy at ASU and TBS member, teaches “Maimonides’ Guide of the Perplexed: What Jews Ought to Believe.” Isaac Levy, TBS member teaching “Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah: How Jews Ought to Behave.” No previous experience necessary; readings in both Hebrew and English.
The classes in Introduction to Judaism, Introductory Hebrew Reading for Adults, and Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah Preparation are cumulative, so no new students can be accepted mid-year, except in very unusual situations. If you are interested in participating in either of these classes when new sessions begin in the Fall of 2016, you may pre-register by contacting Sarah Bochenek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
