To Adult Jewish Studies, the way it was meant to be!

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) has been created in the tradition of teachers establishing bonds with students pursuing intellectual and spiritual growth in their adult years. JLI courses are designed for students ranging from first-time learners to those with years of prior study. We follow a powerful path of discovery and depth, touching the souls of our learners. Participants in JLI courses share an experience of such magnitude that many form lasting ties of close friendship and community.

Chabad House proudly offers JLI courses throughout the year. No background knowledge is required to attend these courses. Each course consists of six interactive lessons. Most classes are accompanied with professional PowerPoint presentations and quality audio and video visuals. Students are provided with textbooks, enabling participants to achieve an in-depth understanding of the curriculum.

If you have any questions about our JLI courses, please contact Rabbi Ari Kievman rak@chabad.org.za

Strength and Struggle: Lessons in Character from the Stories of Our Prophets

Strength and Struggle: Lessons in Character from the Stories of Our Prophets, a brand-new six-session course explores six intriguing, disturbing, and controversial biblical personalities and events from the times of the Prophets: Jephthah’s daughter, the rise and fall of King Saul, Ruth’s migration to Israel, King David and Bathsheba, the wonders of Elisha, and Jonah and the fish.

Through textual analysis and by exploring the ideas offered by classic biblical commentaries, this course offers a snapshot of the first Jewish commonwealth, an era that lasted nearly one thousand years, and probes the aforementioned personalities within their broad historical and sociological contexts, allowing us to reach deep into the essence of these figures and events.

At first it may seem that these stories are full of questions. We will discover, however, that they are full of timeless answers to our innermost questions about life.

Wednesday mornings 9:45am at Chabad House - Savoy Estate
Wednesday evenings 7:15pm at Chabad's Goodness & Kindnes Centre - Sandton Central
