Judaism’s 10 Life-Changing Ideas

Judaism is more than a set of beliefs, a collection of commandments, or a culture. According to Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Judaism is a way of thinking about life, and a way of understanding the world and our place within it. Rabbi Sacks identified 54 ideas, one from each weekly parasha, that can be life-changing. In this course we will consider ten of them, exploring how they can change the way we look at our lives in the year 2023. Ideas change lives, and great ideas help us live meaningful lives filled with happiness and blessing. Together, with the help of Rabbi Sacks, we will consider how Judaism can help us achieve this.

This course is the second of two courses on the topic (but students need not have taken part I to enroll in part II)
