 24.02.2014

This episode of “Sanctuary” explores the vibrant, diverse world of adult Jewish education in the Chicago area — classes that bring life to ancient texts and contemporary study, immersing students in the centuries-old wisdom of sages while, potentially, transforming how the students view their own lives today.

From rabbinic scholars to neophytes with little Jewish background and no knowledge of Hebrew, there’s a program for just about everyone, regardless of age, observance or denomination. Featured are the Florence Melton School for Adult Jewish Learning; Svara: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva; Yeshiva University Torah Mitzion Kollel; and the collection of educational programs offered by JCC Chicago. Rabbi Michael Balinsky of the Chicago Board of Rabbis serves as guide. Cindy Sher hosts.
