Starts Aug. 1 through May. Adult learners will watch online video lectures from Hebrew College in Boston on their own, then meet as a group each month to review and discuss with Rabbi Steven Rubinstein of West Bloomfield-based Cong. Beth Ahm. Study modules will explore how the rabbis of the Talmud transformed what had been a Temple-based sacrificial religious system into the Judaism we know today. Lectures take an in-depth look at diverse Jewish sects and varying religious practices from ancient Israel and Babylonia. Registration is through Hebrew College. $50, or $36 member.
