Throughout the year we offer a range of classes in a traditional learning style, as well as experiential learning through art,movement, and other forms of creative expression. We are blessed to have many talented and passionate teachers in our community, many of whom teach classes for the shul alongside our Spiritual Leadership team. 

Please be in touch with Rabbanit Yael if you have any questions or ideas for upcoming learning opportunities. 

Ongoing Classes

​​3 pm: Learn Tanach with Project 929 and Skokie Valley, led by Myra Weiss.  Our 929 group is part of a worldwide movement, started in Israel by Rabbi Benny Lau. Participants in 929 dedicate themselves to studying one chapter of Tanach each day, Monday through Thursday, thus completing the 929 chapters that make up the entire Tanach in 3 1/2 years. Our group -- like many others throughout the world -- meets once a week on ZOOM to discuss each week's chapters.  It is never too late to jump on board and share this very exciting and satisfying adventure!!! Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/713951311 passcode 613

Wednesday

7:30 pm: 'Ashreinu!' Likutei Moharan with Yudi (Alan) Sufrin Come learn how Rebbe Nachman’s magnum opus, Likutei Moharan, can revolutionize our lives for the better, בס"ד. It's completely unique in the sea of torah literature — or ANY literature. This chabura is for anyone, but the most is to be gained by those who are open to leaving aside their own preconceptions about Hashem’s world and the roles our holy tzadikim play in it. (Free Hebrew copy of Sefer Likutei Moharan available for those who commit to regular attendance. And maybe also those who just show up!) If you miss a class you can always catch up on Spotify: https://spotify.link/zYdzvt65jBb or Anchor: https://anchor.fm/50gates
