ON SOLID GROUND: FUNDAMENTALS OF JUDAISM
WITH KOHENET KESHIRA HALEV FIFE

OCTOBER 2018 - MAY 2019

Fundamentals of Judaism is an exploration of the foundations upon which we stand, providing us a stable place from which to learn, study, practice, create, ritualise and diverge.  Various topics relating to lineage and practice will be covered in each session with supplemental readings recommended throughout the year.  The class will also include a discussion/question component and each student will have the opportunity to have a one-on-one processing/reflection session with Keshira.  This course is open to all who are drawn and requires no prior experience/knowledge.
