TBElle Presents: The Beginnings of Judaism, Part Two – A five week course with Rabbi Bob Orkand

Tuesdays, 10:00-11:15 am, May 12 & 19, June 2, 9 & 16

How did Judaism develop from its biblical roots to the highly developed system we know today? What has changed—and what has remained constant?

In The Beginnings of Judaism–beginning with the Maccabean revolt–participants will explore how the Jewish faith has struggled to continually redefine itself during the first thousand years after the completion of the last books of the Hebrew Bible, tenaciously clinging to existence through circumstances that might logically have marked its end.

This course explores the evolution of an ancient faith into a system of beliefs, practices, and laws recognizable today as Judaism.

Note:  Though this is the second part of this series, having attended part one is not a requirement.  All are welcome!
