ISJLIntown Jewish Academy Launches New 14-Week Torah Studies Course

Statistics show that 47 percent of all New Year resolutions are self-improvement or education related. In that spirit, the Intown Jewish Academy is launching a weekly Torah Studies class that will explore Judaism’s relevance in modern life. These classes are educational and the inspiration they provide will surely help for self-improvement

“This course is truly novel in the way it probes the depths of classic Jewish thought to address the issues we face in contemporary Jewish life”, says Rabbi Ari Sollish, director of the Academy and the course instructor. “I am looking forward to the great discussions that these texts no doubt will generate. The dialogue among participants is often my favorite part of the class.”

Classes will be held at the Intown Jewish Academy, located at 928 Ponce de Leon Avenue, beginning Wednesday, January 8 at 7:30 pm, and continue for 14 consecutive Wednesday evenings. Like all of the Academy’s courses, this latest adult education offering is designed for people at all levels of Jewish knowledge.

Some of the topics to be addressed are realizing your true potential, human struggle, and the power of a single action. The series will also include holiday themed classes, for Purim and Passover.

“Whether you consider yourself a Reform, Conservative, Orthodox or an unaffiliated Jew, this class will bring meaning and insight which will enhance your holidays no matter where you attend services” says Rabbi Sollish.

There is no fee to attend the classes. Students may purchase a course textbook for $20. For more information call the Intown Jewish Academy at 404-898-0434 or visit www.intownjewishacademy.org.
