MITZVOT – THE COMMANDMENTS: WHAT AND WHY?
The Torah contains 613 of them, and some people commonly refer to them as good deeds. But is that really a good description?
In this course, we will learn how the unique relationship between the Jewish people and their God is constituted by both the written and oral components of the Torah, how our observance of mitzvot has grown and transformed through history, and what relevance these ideas might have in a modern, secular society.
The course is given in English, in collaboration with Paideia – the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden.
To apply for this course, you need basic computer skills and knowledge of how to use the digital platform Zoom. The school offers Zoom manuals and a training opportunity before the start of the course.
No prior knowledge about the subject is needed.
Course material is included in the cost for this course.
