What is the course?
For the first time, the course will be online for all classes. The ceremony at the end will be in a synagogue, with a real Torah scroll. We will choose the date and location together based on where participants are based and what government guidelines are around Coronavirus at the time. Although the formal teaching will be online, previous year groups have informally organised to celebrate shabbat and festivals in their homes and in outdoor spaces, so we hope there will be opportunities for in-person socialising too.
Previous students say:
“This was the best adult education experience I have ever had. The Bat Mitzvah class has been massively important to my developing Jewish identity and practice and I am so glad to have had the opportunity to take it. Lev is an amazing teacher. He is great at encouraging us to engage with the content in our own many different ways. He’s also hugely knowledgeable and great at conveying his knowledge in a really interesting way. He has also done a fantastic job of creating a respectful and supportive environment in the class.”
“Thank you so much Lev for the love, time, patience and dedication you’ve given to us all – you’ve created such a special, comforting space and I’m not ready for it to end. I can’t thank you enough ♥️”
“It was a brilliant course – Lev’s teaching and the friendly and supportive atmosphere amongst students!”
“It’s just an incredibly well run, well taught course – inclusive and open.”
