JOIN RABBI AXELMAN'S FREE CLASSES

JEWISH LAW IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD (JLCW)

This class will focus on Jewish Laws and Customs, how they developed pre and post-Talmud,
 pre and post-Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law), and how they apply today.
 

Each Sunday at 12 PM, the class will spend 1-3 sessions 
on a specific Halachic topic
or one of the 613 Mitzvot, 
with the goal of illustrating how it relates to a modern issue
  
(ranging from birth control, intermarriage, conversion, egalitarianism to weddings, funerals,
Jewish Holidays, etc.). 
We will cite directly from traditional texts and trace the evolution of the Laws and customs. 

(Refreshments served).  

JUDAISM 101 Class with Rabbi Axelman 
Mondays at 7:30PM

Like the "Jewish Book of Why", participants in this class
will learn about our faith through questions they bring to the session,
in a non-judgmental, open and candid forum. This is an ideal venue for individuals
who wish to discuss basic principles of Judaism and express their views, questions, etc.
(Refreshments served, donations gratefully accepted). 

Contact WHC Office (718) 767-1500 to register.
