Living Life Jewishly

Living Life Jewishly

What happens when an ancient tradition meets modern life? In this course with Mrs. Fran Miller we will explore how we live our lives as modern people and Torah observant Jews. How do we approach practices like prayers, minhagim, and superstitions? What does Halakha say about vegetarianism and organ donation? What obligations do we have beyond Halakha? We will explore these and other questions, seeking to live a mindfully Jewish life.
