FALL 2016

Rabbi Shlomo Pereira, Instructor

Our two fall courses presented below have a common theme: They are the answer to the questions Rabbis are most frequently asked!

  • How do I make the most of the Holidays and Prayer?
  • How do I make Judaism more meaningful and relevant in my life?

To answer these question, we are pleased to present two courses:

  • Holiday Moods
  • Service of the Heart
