Reparative Wreckage
The Positive Side of Destruction
Our Temple lies in ruins—a reality we’ve been forced to cope with for a couple of thousand years now. But was G‑d really allowed to put a wrecking ball to His sanctuary? A fresh look at the legalities of Temple damage leads us to a startling recalibrating of loss and tragedy.

Summoning the Love
How to Master the Emotional Roadmap
If life were a romance novel, it would be easy to be “in love” at any given moment. Alas, it isn’t. Far from it. Love is quite an elusive trait, which makes the command, “Love your G‑d,” all the more baffling. Discover the key to summoning the love whenever you wish.
Class 1 Tuesday, August 29 2017
The Divorce Dilemma
A Deep Dive into the Divorce Dynamic
Judaism seems to be downright divorce-phobic. Why is divorce really all that bad? Are there any situations that warrant a divorce in the Jewish conscience? Of course. Not only that, the very notion of divorce only aides the institution of marriage. Find out how.
Class 1 Tuesday, September 5 2017
The Gift of the Giver
The Gratitude-Happiness Connection
Living in the age of “stuff,” it is becoming clearer that more is not always merrier. But If we are so well off compared to previous generations, why are we so unhappy? By understanding the root causes of misery, we find a simple formula for gratitude, happiness, and true wealth.

A Call For Unity
Hakhel, Then and Now
When the Temple stood, the Jewish nation would gather once in seven years to hear the King read publicly from the Torah. Standing united, every Jew would draw lasting inspiration to last for years to come. Though the Temple doesn’t currently stand, this class shows that we can and should observe hakhel in our time.

The Silent Voice
Listening to the Shofar?s Call
Whether you are still young or already old and grey, Rosh Hashanah likely brings the shofar to mind. But what is the meaning of the shofar’s sound? This Rosh Hashanah anthology explains what a ram’s horn, long prayers, and the Jewish New Year have in common.
Class 1 Tuesday, September 26 2017
The Holy Heretic
All Is Never Lost
Of all the Talmud’s characters, perhaps the most enigmatic is the story of Elisha ben Avuya—the illustrious scholar turned heretic. In an inspiring interpretation of the narrative, Elisha’s story is the story of all Jews. The point? All is never lost. G‑d is waiting for you to return.
Class 1 Tuesday, October 3 2017
What Moses Didn?t Know
Capturing the Core of the Jew
On the holiday that celebrates completing the Torah, we… hold it shut and dance around in circles. Have we gone mad? And where did this idea come from, anyway? Well, it’s as holy as Moses, or, as this class exposes, maybe even more.
