Practical Judaism by Rabbi Ari Jacobson

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 :

‘Rabbi Jacobson’s class No.1, Basic Judaism is very well communicated. Thank you for relaying this important information! I recommend his course most highly!’  -Jule Bevell

Other class topics include:

Washing Hands upon Awakening

Covering One’s Head

Proper Prayer

The Halachot of Shema

Preparing for the Amida

There are already over 20 classes in this series so students can begin learning right away and go at their own pace.
