Basic Judaism classes

Session 2: Saturday, May 7, from 1-2:30 p.m., the Jewish Way in Death and Mourning

Death and Life-after-Death are “big questions” that Jews, like everyone else, must wrestle with in terms of belief. In this class we’ll delve into a brief exploration of Jewish beliefs in regards to what happens after death coupled with how those beliefs inform Jewish practices surrounding death and mourning.

Both sessions are open to all who wish to learn with an open mind. You do not need to attend both sessions to participate. The goal is to share information, not impose beliefs. Questions and comments are welcome and will be answered as best they can! Both sessions will be taught by Student Rabbi, Tina Sobo. Tina has her Master’s in Religious Education from Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, OH and will be a fully ordained Rabbi in May 2016.

There is no charge for the class, however, reservations would be appreciated to Eileen, (937) 623-1234 or
