NEW Online Learning Courses - Choose your own learning
Thursday January 18th – Thursday April 26th 2018
Choose your own Learning
We are proud to be bringing Project Zug to NNLS this year, partnering with Mechon Hadar in New York City to share the newest and most innovative ways to learn and study.
What is Project Zug?
Zug means partner, and Project Zug is a way to connect people in our community, to learn what they want, when they want. Choose from a range of fabulous courses, download source sheets with thought-provoking study questions, and watch the teachers of each course present the material in online videos.
How does it work?
1] Complete this online booking form
2] Choose up to 3 of these courses in order to maximise the chances of finding the best learning partner (you will only participate in one course):
Rabbi Shai Held - Theology of Psalms: Praying Biblical Poetry
Rabbi Avital Hochstein - Visiting the Sick: A Talmudic Exploration
Clive Lawton and Maureen Kendler - Am I responsible? An Exploration of Jewish and Human Responsibility
Rabbi Elie Kaunfer - The Prayerbook: New Interpretive Methods
Rabbi Avi Killip - The Balancing Act: Being a Jewish Parent
Rabbi Avi Strausberg - Intro to the Jewish Bookshelf
3] Mark down roughly when you are available to learn in the week (whether in person or online).
4] Register for the special price of £25 (no one will be excluded for financial reasons, please contact the office for more information)
5] If you already have a learning partner in mind, let us know, otherwise we will match you with someone who shares your interests.
Come along to our launch event on Thursday 18th January at 8.15pm at the Beit Midrash to study together and learn more about Project Zug.
We will celebrate
our learning with a closing Siyyum on Thursday 26th April at 8.15pm, with
sharing what we’ve learnt, hopefully with a special guest (or two).
Project Zug was founded by
Benjamin Ross, a rabbinical student at Hebrew Union College, and Hagit
Bartuv, Former Director of Midreshet, a Jewish-Israeli online learning
platform. Benjamin and Hagit connected in 2012 in Jerusalem, and
developed a shared goal of using Jewish learning to connect Jews in
Israel and America.
Their vision became a reality, leading to more than 800 participants in Project Zug in under 3 years!
