Class 1 To Carry Another's Load - Tuesday, April 9th
A Primer on Empathetic Leadership
What makes a leader? Vision? Drive? Powerful communication skills? In Judaism, a leader must have more than personal ability. This lesson examines the human capacity to share in another’s pain.
Class 2 Me? A Noble Prince? - Tuesday, April 16th
How Thinking Holy Affects Being Holy
It's really difficult to be holy and indulgent at the same time. This lesson encourages thinking about yourself as holy to aid in personal development and discover a side of yourself that you never thought possible.
Class 3 First Things First - Tuesday, April 23rd
Finding Time for the Important
If money were not a concern, how would you spend your time? This lesson discusses the importance of locking in quality time and making the most of the moments we share with the people and ideals we love most.
Class 4 Footprints In The Sand - Tuesday, April 30th
Maintaining Relationships Through Thick and Thin
The colloquial expression, “I will always be there for you,” takes on new meaning in this fascinating class on true love and the Omnipresent’s enduring relationship with us, His children.
Class 5 The Sound Of Silence - Tuesday, May 7th
Shedding Bias for Personal Growth
How do you unite with another human being, to become “like one person with one heart”? This lesson suggests going for a hard reset by putting yourself aside and focusing on others to reveal the common bond.
Class 6 Fruit And Fruition - Tuesday, May 14th
An Insight on Results-Oriented Thinking
Good intentions may not pave the path to hell, but absent deed, they certainly will not lead to Heaven. This lesson discusses the importance of deed and the symbolism of Shavuot as the New Year for fruit.
Class 7 Feeler Or Follower? - Tuesday, May 21st
Cultivating a Human Relationship with G‑d
Is religion about conforming, or about discovering your own inner connection? This lesson unravels a puzzling discussion between Moses and G‑d about the heart of our relationship with the Divine.
Class 8 Of High Walls And Mighty Wills - Tuesday, May 28th
A Timely Teaching in the Art of Courage
Many of us harbor unfulfilled dreams—visions of how we would be if only we had the strength to live up to our potential. This class offers a fresh take on the account of the spies in Jericho, one that tells of allure and self-mastery.
Class 9 Sparkling Deeds - Tuesday, June 4th
Infusing Feeling into Everyday Actions
Doing is most important, but emotions are the wings that make you soar. This class examines a biblical story of reincarnation, and of repeat mistakes, in order to teach us this vital lesson.
Class 10 To Live And Die For - Tuesday, June 11th
Living up to Our Most Essential Values
What does it mean to truly live? What would you be prepared to lay down your life for? This lesson views living as a dedication to ideals greater than yourself, and shows how we are all capable of living up to such lofty ideals.
Class 11 When You Dream A Dream - Tuesday, June 18th
The Power of Imagination and Thought
In an endeavor to understand Judaism’s fascination with dreams, we explore the human capacity for prophecy and examine scenarios in which a single thought can make a world of difference.
Class 12 Surfing Life's Waves - Tuesday, June 25th
Lessons from the Moon Prayer
Life is never a level ride. We encounter inspirations and platitudes, feelings of connection and of emptiness. Learn to dance to the rhythm of life, and how to get up when you’re down, and discover a destination worth waiting for.
