12 Jewish Questions

A (Re)Introduction to Adult-Level Judaism

Do I need to believe in God to be Jewish? What happens after we die? Where is God in times of tragedy? How do I rest when I have no time?

12 Jewish Questions is a learning community for adults – Jewish and non-Jewish – who have questions about Jewish identity, beliefs, culture, and customs. It’s an environment to discover (and rediscover) the relevance of Judaism in our lives.

Back to Basics

Explore why we do what we do as Jews, find the sources for our traditions, and delve into the origins of these ideas with Back to Basics.

With a focus on the holidays, life cycle events, history, theology, Jewish religious movements, Torah laws, the Mishnah, the Talmud, and Kabbalah, we’ll uncover the answers to the “why” behind Judaism. Together, we’ll look deeper and discover answers to questions we might never have thought to ask.
