History Through Text with Rabbi Kulwin Continues in April @ TBA

TBA's Congregational Learning offers classes in History Through Text with Rabbi Kulwin throughout the year at Temple B'nai Abraham, Livingston. The topic this year is “The Jewish Religion.”  Taught in blocks of several weeks, each class will also be a stand-alone unit so that an inability to attend all (or even most) of the sessions will not be an impediment to an enjoyable and simulating learning experience. All sessions are free and open to the community.​

 On April 19, at 7:00 PM, “Liberal Judaism in Germany” will be explored. Jewish religious reform began in Germany, with the founding of Wissenschaft des Judentums, (Science of Judaism), the 19th century movement premised on critical examination of the Jewish past. This led to the establishment of Reform Judaism in Germany as new theological understandings made innovations in liturgy possible, and departures from rigorous observance acceptable. Happily for us, the early leaders loved to write, and their papers, diaries and liturgy paint a vivid picture of their Jewish world.

The next dates are Thursday, May 10 and Thursday, June 14. To register or for more information, please go to www.tbanj.org. For information, call 973.994.2290.
