Held at Temple Emunah, Fee: $345 (financial aid available)

Me'ah Select is a 10 week in-depth exploration of a specific topic, designed for adults of all backgrounds-whether you are seeking to take a first step or the next step in your Jewish Journey.  Lexington is pleased to host Dr. David Ariel as he teaches a course on Moses Maimonides. Moses Maimonides (1135-1204) was the consummate Jewish leader who articulated thirteen fundamental principles of Jewish belief which have defined traditional Jewish faith ever since.  In this class, we will develop an understanding of his views on the meaning of Jewish existence, the possibiltiy of reconciling secular and religious thought, the principles of Jewish belief, and an ethical approach to life.  We will also look at his philosophic beliefs about God, good and evil, prayer, and the limits of reason as well as his expanantions of the Jewish dietary laws, charity, and the laws of mourning.   Register:  http://www.hebrewcollege.edu/meah-select.  Info or questions: Contact Sara Brown at Hebrew College, 617-559-8708 or meah@hebrewcollege.edu.

Me'ah: 100 Hours of Study

Me'ah — Hebrew for 100 — is an intensive Jewish educational experience designed for busy adult learners of all backgrounds.

Participants are immersed in reading core Jewish texts, grappling with concepts representing cultural and political movements from four historical periods — biblical, rabbinic, medieval, and modern.

Me'ah courses comprise 100 hours of class time over two years. As one of the original sites for Me'ah, more than 100 members of Temple Isaiah have completed this extraordinary program with high-level instructors. A new Temple Isaiah/Temple Emunah cohort has been developed for Fall 2015. Please contact Rabbi Amy Hertz, Director of Jewish Living, AHertz@templeisaiah.net for more information. The cost per year is $700 for first time registrants and $550 for Me'ah graduates (who are taking Me'ah again). Please consider asking a friend to join with you! Limited scholarship money is available.

This class meets on Thursday mornings from 9:30am-noon.

Be part of this special cohort at Temple Isaiah and in the greater Boston area.

Temple Isaiah and Temple Emunah are recruiting for a new Lexington cohort for 2017-2019 Me'ah, on Monday evenings. Me'ah provides adults of all backgrounds with an intellectual framework for understanding the narrative of the Jewish people.  For more information, see www.hebrewcollege.edu/meah.  To register, contact Linna Ettinger, adulted@templeemunah.org or Rabbi Amy Hertz, ahertz@templeisaiah.net.
