Torah Studies
  CATALOG   11 Wednesdays, starting April 17th, 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Dear Friend,

Chabad of Longmont, is proud to present our Torah Studies catalog of classes for our 2012 academic year.
At Chabad, we value a deep, rich learning experience and we aim to provide this in an unequivocal way. This is why we have brought you a Torah Studiesprogram of the highest caliber, developed by the world-renowned Rohr Jewish Learning Institute. The program brings you a series of stimulating text and discussion based classes that take place on a weekly basis. Our lessons will engage you in a multidimensional way by challenging you intellectually, spiritually and emotionally. They explore contemporary issues through a Torah perspective as well as tackling timeless questions in the Jewish tradition.
I invite you to browse through the topics in this catalog and to join us for some weekly inspirational study. In this new season, we will also offer classes about the upcoming Jewish holidays – Lag Ba'Omer and Shavuot. These classes are open to all, whatever your level of learning may be, and we encourage you to bring your friends along.
Shalom,
Rabbi Yakov Borenstein

Stop the Gossip

Cultivating a Slander-Free Mentality
Whether we do it out of peer pressure, to show people how much we know, or just to make ourselves look better, gossip is gossip, and it’s wrong. This lesson examines why people might talk badly about others and how we can cultivate a gossip-free mentality.

My Life or Yours
Between Selfishness and Self-Preservation
Two travelers traverse a desert with enough water for only one to survive. Whose life comes first? Is self-preservation a selfish ideal? When is it important to put yourself first? And when do you have a prior duty to worry about the well-being of others?

Seasons for the Soul
Jewish Festivals in Answer to Life’s Challenges

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

The Kabbalah of Cheesecake

Spirituality or Reality

Is Home Where the Heart Is?
From the synagogue off to the bank, divided between sometimes conflicting realms, the Jew has occupied the role of a realist—living in the here and now, and the role of a spiritualist—ascribing to a higher reality.
