• Discover what these texts meant in their original settings, how they have been received and interpreted, and their enduring relevance today.
• Engage in stimulating discussions guided by JTS’s outstanding faculty and other distinguished scholar-teachers.
• Join a vibrant learning community of adult learners from diverse backgrounds who are committed to serious Jewish study.
