Together we will explore such topics as basic Jewish literacy, history, tradition, denominational Judaism, the modern State of Israel, Jewish mysticism (Kabala), customs, ethics, culture, and wisdom in a setting where questions are more important than answers. Classes are interactive, relaxed, engaging and fun.
Tuition includes books, course materials, and a host of online resources:
- $180 for individuals
- $270 for couples
Current TIS members will only be charged a small materials fee. Please speak to Rabbi Marko.

Wherever you come from. Wherever you are going.
