A new and exciting, text-based class in Jewish Philosophy with Rabbi Yoni!

The Kuzari: In Defense of the Despised Faith
Thursday Evenings at 7:30pm, beginning November 1st
Do you want to tackle the deepest ideas of Judaism in a clear and exciting way?
Are you a seeker of the truth and possess an intelligent, thinking mind?
Take a front seat in the debate arena as the sharpest minds debate on the fundamentals of religion, faith, and a diverse range of basic Jewish concepts. It took the esteemed 12th-century sage, Rabbi Yehudah HaLevi twenty years to complete this work. In its unique question-and-answer format it records an ongoing dialogue between the 8th-century king of the Khazars and a Rabbi. The depth and scope of the ideas discussed in this book are nothing short than brilliant, and the reader cannot help but be awed at the authoritative, wide-ranging virtuosity of Rabbi Yehudah HaLevi as “the rabbi” in the debate confidently repudiates the arguments of Judiasm’s detractors and demonstrates the superiority of Torah over any other religion or belief system.

Join us as Rabbi Yoni takes us on a weekly journey through the world of Jewish Philosophy!
