About the Course:
Where does faith come from? What does it entail? Where does doubt fit into a life of faith? Where Do Jews who do not believe fit in? What about practice? Does it lead to faith, or do you need to have faith to practice? This course provides a nuanced and engaging introduction to these concepts using Shalom Hartman Institute Foundations for a Thoughtful Judaism Curriculum.
