Schedule for The Winter 2013 Semester
Rabbi Dr. Yitzchak Breitowitz 9:25:10:40
Topic: Daniel,Ezra,and Nechemia
The books of Daniel,Ezra,and Nechemia are rarely studied yet deal with themes that are very relevant to modern times :the return to Tzion after 70 years of galut,the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Beit Hamikdash,and the religious and political steps that needed to be taken to reconstitute Jewish society in the aftermath of devastating calamity. We will attempt to explore these themes through the Biblical narrative.
Dr. Chana Tannenbaum 10:50-12:05
Topic: Sefer Tehilim
This semester we will have a chance to examine some of the chapters in Tehillim. We will study some of the well known as well as the obscure mizmorim. The goal will be to familiarize ourselves with the structure, meaning, messages and the application to our lives today.
Rabbi Anthony Manning (Jan.16-Feb 6) 12:20-13:35
Topic: Rabbinic Authority and Da’at Torah
Da’at Torah – a requirement to follow Rabbinic instruction across broad life issues (including elections!) – is much discussed, but what are its halachic and hashkafic roots? What is the foundation of historic and current Rabbinic authority? This four part series will explore these issues through the classic and contemporary Torah sources.
Rabbi Dovid Gotleib (Feb 13-March 6) 12:20-13:35
Topic: The Mitzvot of Shabbat
Too often our focus – in practice and in study – is about the “don’ts” of Shabbat and as a result we don’t sufficiently appreciate the beauty created by the “dos.” In this mini-course we will examine some of the mitzvot and minhagim of Shabbat. Topics to be studied include: Preparing for Shabbat; Appropriate Dress, “Early Shabbat,” and Shabbat Candles.
