The South Philadelphia Shtiebel* is a Jewish community initiative in South Philadelphia that is grounded in tradition and fueled by the spirit of the new, and which empowers its community members to be active participants in Jewish life, and Torah learning.
 
The Shtiebel is a shul but it’s not just any shul. It is only in its first few months, and it is already also a community center, buzzing with spirited Jewish learning, kids playing, new friendships forming, and lively prayer services. It’s a radically accessible space, where both lifetime shul-goers and people who haven’t set foot in a synagogue in twenty years feel comfortable. And it’s a genuinely unique space, a space rooted in halacha, or Jewish law, and also a home for emergent ideas.

    The South Philadelphia Shtiebel, Mekor Habracha and the Jewish Learning Center of Philadelphia (JLCP) invite you to join us for an exciting new program, the Basic Judaism Class. Topics include but are not limited to: The Jewish Life Cycle, Jewish history, philosophy, ethics, practice, and Bible. We will experience the spirituality and tastes of Shabbat. We will journey together through the experiences of the various Jewish holidays. This 36-week course will include a weekly class on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 to 8:45 PM, and is open to all those who are interested in learning about and being involved in the beauty of Jewish traditions, ideas, texts, history, and community. The course begins, Tuesday February 4. The suggested donation for the 36 classes is $500, though no one will be turned away for financial reasons. Not sure if the course is right for you? Contact Rabbi David Kalb, Rabbi Eliezer Hirsch or Rabbanit Dasi Fruchter for more info. Please indicate on the form if you would also be interested in a Crash Course in Hebrew in Reading, as a a companion to Basic Judaism (To be offered during the last several weeks of the Basic Judaism Class). The Basic Judaism Class is not a conversion program in and of itself, but it can be used as a course of study for individuals pursuing conversion to Judaism. If you are interested in conversion, please speak to us and we will connect you to an appropriate Rabbi. The Jewish Learning Center of Philadelphia is based on the highly successful Jewish Learning Center of New York, a project of Ohr Torah Stone. The Jewish Learning Center provides intellectually stimulating Jewish educational programs, vibrant cultural activities, exciting social gatherings and important social action programs in the context of a spiritual, open and welcoming setting.
