Virtual Learning with Cantor Alisa Forman

 Sunday, January 15, 2023 @ 10:30 a.m. on Zoom

Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between a Reform, Conservative, Modern Orthodox, Orthodox, Hasidic, Reconstructionist and Renewal Jew? What are the different movements in Judaism in the U.S. and where did they come from? What’s the history behind all these flavors of Judaism? Which ones came first and how did they influence each other?
We’ll look at the roots of Jewish movements through Emancipation and Enlightenment in Europe and see how the different branches developed.
Come join us on Zoom on Sunday, January 15, 2023 at 10:30 a.m.
for this look at the development and differences and current status of the different movements of Judaism.
We are looking to change the time of our monthly class.
If you have any suggestions or preferences, let Barbara or the Cantor know. Also, please share any topics of interest to you.
