Jewish Magic and Mysticism  with Robin Wald 
Did you know that all modern Western magical practices, including astrology, Tarot, numerology, dream divination, and angelology have their roots in the Torah, Talmud and Jewish mystical/magical tradition known as Kabblh?

In this class, you will learn about the ancient, medieval and modern Jewish history and practice of magical techniques. What is allowable or prohibited in Judaism as it relates to trying to divine God’s will? How are astrology, gematria and Kabbalistic teachings useful and relevant in helping you understand your own soul purpose and choices?
Mock Beit Din (Moot Court)  with Guy Amdur
Our rabbinic court or house of judgment was the ancient Jewish authority when it came to questions about living day-to-day. While their authority was always the final word in ancient times, they still play an important role in lives of religious Diaspora Jews today.

In this class, we will debate current and relevant topics, everything from gun control to school dress codes - but rather than looking at only the sides for and against, we will also consider what scripture has to say... That’s right, through your collective research we will see how the Beit Din would respond for the times in which we now live.
Many of the main characters we meet in the Torah are on the margins of society. Why is that? What are we supposed to learn from them?
