January 24: “How to Be a Jew Without God”

WITHOUT A NET:
HOW TO PRAY, CELEBRATE, AND GENERALLY BE A JEW WITHOUT GOD

You are welcome come any Wednesday you can make it, 7:30 p.m. through the end of January.

There are some Jews who like being Jewish except for one thing: They don’t know how to reconcile their difficulty with the idea of “God” with their love of worship and holidays. Come join us to study and learn ways to be Jewish, practice Judaism, and embrace rational God concepts.

 

First Hebrew Congregation will hold a weekly class “Without A Net – How To Pray, Celebrate nd Generally Be A Jew Without God,” taught by Cantor Erik Contzius.  Cantor Contzius earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Rutgers College, and then studied abroad at the University of York, England. He received his Master of Sacred Music degree from the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, School of Sacred Music, studying in Israel and New York City. He has served as cantor at Temple Israel of Omaha, Nebraska, Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, Temple Israel of New Rochelle, New York, and has been adjunct faculty at Hebrew Union College.

The class is free for members of First Hebrew, non-members pay $5 per class. It meets downstairs at First Hebrew.
