The Three WeeksJoin us this Wednesday for a Holiday Series class:


For millennia Jews have observed a summertime three-week mourning period in commemoration of a series of tragic events in our history.

Learn the important story and history of the events remembered during this time, find out how the three weeks are observed, and finally, discover the powerful inspirational message they contain, both for us as individuals and for the Jewish people as a whole. 

Led by Rabbi Yitzchok Schmukler

Judaism Decoded wraps up!

JLI Logo.jpgSix weeks of  informative and fun learning, animated discussion and methodical anlaysis came to close this week with the final session of the JLI course, Judaism Decoded. The closing lesson explored one the most essential topics in Jewish faith: Judaism's logical arguements for the veracity and historicity of the events of Mount Sinai.  

Chabad of the Bay Area is registered affiliate of the Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Serving learning centers in over 900 communities and on the internet, the JLI is the world's preeminent provider of Jewish learning.
