Come venture through over 400 years of Jewish history that restructured Judaism into the modern, portable form we have today. Understand the foundation of the statement of Mark Twain:

"The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?"
Mark Twain: "Concerning The Jews", Harper's Magazine, September 1899.

These classes will reveal the secrets of our immortality. It started with a group of 120 greats of a bygone era of 1st Temple Judaism and morphed into an introspective living organism to transcend the trials of every era.

These classes apply to all Jews who practice any form of Judaism. For every form of Judaism is based upon the teachings and mindset of the Rabbis of the era we’ll be covering. Purim, Channukah, Kiddush and Havdala, Weekly reading of the Torah, Standardized Jewish education, The Amida, etc… all began during this period. We will discover the different paths that our predecessors could have taken, but then comprehend the choices they made which created our reality, then we will have a better understanding of how to shape our future.

Please join us and bring a friend to discover our roots; thereby promoting a possible path to our Jewish future.
