Course Syllabus

Class One – To Be a Jewish Woman
The vast majority of mitzvot are gender-nuetral. Kabbalah offers a unique (and surprising!) perspective on those that are gender specific. How does this impact Jewish women today?

Class Two – Love and Intimacy
Do you believe in love? Why get married? A frank discussion on the intense power of intimacy and its gift to humanity.

Class Three – Mikvah - Then and Now
It’s Judaism’s best kept secret . . . but it shouldn’t be anymore! Everything you wanted to know about Mikvah but didn’t know how to ask. Discover the key component to loving Jewishly.

Class Four - The Jewish Contribution to the Big Ideas of History.
More than monotheism, beyond socialism or nationalism or the rights of man, the Jewish contribution to civilization has resonated for over 3,500 years. What is it?

Class Five – What Does It All Mean to Me, Anyway?
A discussion of life on campus, and in the working world today. 

Class Six – Mikvah Tour and Luncheon -
Visit Malden’s new state of the art, beautiful Mikvah. Meet back at Chabad House for a celebratory luncheon and share reflections.
