Jewish learning programmes for women in 2017

Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner has launched two learning programmes for women in 2017.

Two frameworks are offered, each costing £100 for the whole of 2017. Both assume no previous Talmudic knowledge.

The Chai (life) Shiur

This will be a monthly Talmud/leadership shiur (class) for Progressive young adults who self-identify as women on a leadership trajectory (up to age 32) with chavurah supper from 7-9pm. There are 18 (numerical value of the Hebrew letters of chai ??) spaces available – with a corresponding 18 spaces at Rabbi Laura’s dining table.

False Obstacles

A monthly shiur open for all self-identifying women of any age. Rabbi Laura will teach about obstacles that are placed in front of Jewish women in the name of halacha (Jewish law) to stop them participating in personal or public rituals/Jewish public life whether explicitly religious or communal. This includes issues such as women singing in public, wearing tallitot (prayer shawls), reading from Torah in public etc. From 7-9pm. (location to be confirmed, will include an online platform)

If you would like to participate please email rabbilaura@rjuk.org and cc Sonia Leigh sonia.leigh@rjuk.org. Places are filling fast, particularly for the Chai Shiur.
