Judaism Decoded off to a great start


The new JLI course, Judaism Decoded, got off to a great start this week!

The courses are held Tuesdays, 7:30 to 9:00 pm. With five more lessons to go, it is not too late to jump in. 

Register online or contact us at [email protected] or call 713-398-2460.

Judaism Decoded sheds light on the mysteries surrounding biblical interpretation. How do we know our interpretation is true? If it is true, why is it subject to differences of opinion? And with so many interpretations to choose from, how do we know which one reflects its original intent?

Discover the sheer elegance of the “source code” on which Torah law is built; enjoy the razor-sharp reasoning, intelligent debate, and compelling arguments of the Talmudic dialectic; and get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the most intellectually sophisticated religion in existence.
