"I found these classes to be different than most that I’ve attended in the past. They are dynamic, personal and meaningful. This has been a wonderful learning experience."
-- Michael D. Felder, MD Pediatrician, Los Angeles, CA

All in all, I now have a completely new understanding of my religion.  There are so many things that I could have gone my whole life not knowing that I know now, and I’m very thankful that I took this class.  It just made me even more interested in Judaism, and I have so many questions and would love to continue learning more.  … really opened up my mind to so many things I would have never even thought I’d have wanted it opened up to.  And I’m definitely now much more proud of my religion than I ever was before.
