Topic: Philosophy, Torah

Vayikra artwork by Darius Gilmont

The Book of Leviticus is not just a book about sacrifices and templeorship; it also explores Jewish perspectives on tragedy, forgiveness, and holiness. Our 10-session course will elevate the esoteric laws into the realm of accessible and practical — with a sprinkling of sanctity mixed in. Together, we will discover holiness in the mundane, and the depth and wisdom each one of us can absorb from this oft-overlooked book of the Torah.
