Join us for an in-depth look into modern day Hasidism. Through lectures and text study, we will learn about traditional Hasidim, and how it is being interpreted and practiced today.

Topics will include:

  • What is Hasidism, and what do we mean by a "New" Hasidism?

  • Classic Hasidic text through 21st century eyes

  • Rabbi Green’s writings: "Neo-Hasidic Credo” and "How I Practice Judaism, and Why”
