New Semester Explores Judaism’s Relevance in Modern Life

Chabad Jewish Center of Harford County will launch the first season of its 2011 -2012 Torah Studies course This Wednesday. Classes will be held at the Chabad Center, 102 North Main St. in Bel Air, beginning October 26, 7:30 – 8:30 pm, and continue for eleven consecutive Wednesday evenings. Like all of Chabad’s programs, this latest adult education offering is designed for people at all levels of Jewish knowledge.

“This course is truly novel in the way it probes the depths of classic Jewish thought to address the issues we face in contemporary Jewish life”, says Rabbi Schusterman, the course instructor. “I am looking forward to the great discussions that these texts no doubt will generate. The dialogue among participants is often my favorite part of the class.”

Interested students are welcome to attend all the classes or one of the classes at no charge. The course has a textbook that is available for $36, which enhances the class but is not required. All are welcome! Feel free to call Chabad with any Questions or to enroll at 443-353-9718 or visit
