The second hour, Purposes of Jewish Living, concentrates on the ultimate pur­poses of Judaism and the development of the covenant with G-d as revealed through the Bible and other sacred texts.

YEAR TWO One hour is devoted to Dramas of Jewish Living: Exploring Jewish History as a tool to strengthen Jewish memory. It is an interactive study of a broad range of historical texts relating to specific dramas in Jewish history. The second hour, Ethics of Jewish Living, is a text-centered approach to the study of Jewish ethical foundations and includes discussions relating to justice, the sanctity of life, death, sexuality and community.
