Heirlooms: 7 Sessions Study Series with Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie

7:00-9:00 PM ET

What’s the History of the Seven Most Popular Jewish Symbols and their Secrets of Spiritual Survival?

For 3,000 years, across continents, Jews have adapted to shifting civilizations and cultures, creating essential and symbolic household objects that refine Jewish life and define Judaic legacy.

Join Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie for a series of seven interactive online study sessions exploring these essential Judaic objects, their surprising histories and enduring purpose as practical portals for personal growth and communal connection.

The seven heirlooms offered in this course are not the only ones that matter, but explored together, through post-patriarchal and critical lenses, each has old secrets and new stories for us to learn from and celebrate.
