There are many aspects of Jewish Law that are practical, they make a lot of sense and we use them regularly: such as basic Kosher laws, the rules for Pesach (Passover), and the order for prayer services. In this 30 minute class, we will talk about all the things that are not so common, seem weird, or are just interesting. Can you use an elephant as a wall for your sukkah? Is there a correct way to put on your shoes? Come learn some of the odd and interesting things that our sages discussed. Materials will be in English and Hebrew, discussions in English.
