Although these classes are primarily intended for those converting to Judaism, other members are welcome to join the group, which meets after the service on the following dates:

February 2012: Saturday 11th: The Jewish Experience of history Friday 17th: Anti-semitism On the Friday evening, the service commences at 8.00 pm and will be followed by the study session which normally concludes no later than 9.30 pm. On Saturdays, the class will also follow the 11.00 am service, starting at around 12.45pm and ending at 1.45pm. Refreshments will be available. Please note that those involved in the conversion programme are expected to attend the service as well as the class that follows it. Attendance at services is an integral part of the conversion course.

Thursday Nights At TLSE Our Thursday night adult education programme for January and February will be looking at the Dead Sea Scrolls: the story of their extraordinary discovery, their contents (some of which we will study in depth) and the light they throw on the history of a critical period in the development of Judaism. Using a combination of video material, texts of the scrolls themselves (in English!) and independent historical sources, we will study together and try to piece together why Rabbinic Judaism was the version of our ancient religion that emerged from this turbulent period to shape the Jewish heritage for the next 1500 years.

February 2012: February 2nd

7.45-9.15 pm The theology of the Essenes and other Jewish groups of the period. February 9th 7.45-9.15 pm How the scrolls were written and preserved. February 16th 7.45-9.15 pm ‘What did the Romans ever do for us?’ How the Romans divided the Jews. February 23rd 7.45-9.15 pm Rabbinic Judaism - how it emerged from the ruins.
