LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS: OR, JEWISH ADULTING 101 [Tuesdays 6:30-8 pm OR Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 pm]You're in college. So, you're an adult now, right? Feel like you should have all the answers? JLF brings together a group of students trying to figure out how to be adults, and what place Jewishness has in all this. We'll ask and answer questions like, How do I make friends? What can I expect in a sexual relationship? How can I cope with conflict? What do I actually believe in? As in, Who do I want to become? Recommended for first-year students; open to all undergraduates.
PURSUING JUSTICE [Mondays 6:30-8:00 pm]Ever feel like those photos you took on your spring break to do service had greater implications than you got to discuss? How has Jewish tradition grappled with the need to assist those in need? How do we navigate the seemingly unlimited opportunities available to make a difference in today’s world? Sometimes it feels like our socially aware, postmodern beliefs are completely distinct from our Jewish identities. In this seminar, we seek to cultivate thoughtful discussion and radically honest reflection about the intersection of Judaism and social justice.
SEX LOVE & ROMANCE [thursdays 6:30-8:00 pm]Let's talk about sex, Jewishly. For many of us sexuality and intimacy are some of the issues that matter most but around which we receive the least guidance. We will aim to explore sexual ethics and the ever-elusive notion of intimacy in a way that honors our minds and bodies and respects our position as modern, thoughtful adults. Open to all undergraduates who have not previously participated in JLF.
