College of Spirituality: Judaism 101

How did the Jewish religion begin?  Why do Orthodox Jewish men wear small boxes on their foreheads when praying?  Are the Old Testament and Torah the same thing?  What does it mean to keep kosher?  If you’ve ever wondered about these or other topics relating to Judaism, then this is the class for you!

This six week class covers the origins of the Jewish religion as well as its scriptures, festivals, fasts, holy days, practices, customs, and more!

Theresa Hohman, Leader:  After studying Comparative Religion at UW, Theresa traveled through India, Japan, and Israel in an effort to better understand Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, and Christianity.  With the intention of raising awareness and reducing religious intolerance based on ignorance, she created this class, that all might experience the beauty of Judaism looking through her lens of love.
