Yom Tov - Classes on the Jewish Holidays
Yom Tov classes focus on a variety of aspects concerning Jewish holidays and commerations,
such as: the philosophy behind the holiday; historical background; customs and practices;
and relevant laws. Usually, a particular holiday is discussed enough time before that holiday
rolls around so that there is time for questions to be answered and further discussion. At times,
Special Editions are sent out besides the regular classes. Special Editions consist of questions
that readers have asked, or thoughts that readers have sent in that need to be shared with the
whole reading audience. Because of this, reader participation is strongly welcomed and encouraged!
While a background in the basic principles of Jewish law is helpful, it is not necessary.
I hope all find Yom Tov to be an enriching learning experience. I know that I do!
