Practical Judaism is geared to people who want to learn the fundamentals of Jewish faith and practice. This course, based on the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, the Abreviated Code of Jewish Law by Rabbi Shlomo Gantzfried, (ca.1886), focuses on the concrete application of Jewish Law. Some of the topics covered include how to pray, keep kosher, and observe Shabbos. The course does not assume any prior knowledge of Judaism or Torah concepts, and can be enjoyed by both beginners and advanced students.
Students have been enjoying this class since the very beginning. Here is what one student wrote in about the very first class, The Right Start to Your Day :
