September 1, 2011 – Debunking the Myths

Rabbi Leibel Stolik of Chabad of South Palm Beach (JLI) will present Fascinating Facts: Exploring the Myths and Mysteries of Judaism. The six-session course of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will commence on Tuesday, November 8 at 7:00 pm at Chabad @ The Plaza Del Mar, 242A S. Ocean Blvd.

Spanning a wide range of intriguing subjects, Fascinating Facts includes sessions on Jewish myth and urban legend, biblical stories and events, Jewish foods, the Hebrew language, life cycle events, and mysteries of the occult. The course will address issues such as the Jewish view on Satan and the evil eye, whether angels have wings, and why pork is considered the quintessential non-kosher food.

"This course is a fun and insightful overview of Jewish heritage intended to promote Jewish cultural literacy within the community," says Rabbi Leibel Stolik, "We aim to enlighten even the most seasoned trivia buffs with a treasure trove of 'Who knew?' Jewish factoids."

Like all JLI programs, Fascinating Facts is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including  those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call 561-889-3499 or visit www.myJLI.com for registration and other course-related information.
