New JLI Course Comes to London and Leeds

Friday, 30 October, 2009 - 4:05 am

jli.jpgNext week, the Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will commence its anticipated new course, SoulQuest: The Journey Through Life, Death, and Beyond, in locations throughout London and in Leeds.

The course explores the twin mysteries of life and death through traditional Jewish texts couples with state of the art audio-visual technology. Drawing extensively from the Talmud and Kabbalah, the course addresses the most commonly asked questions about the soul’s journey as well as some not-so-common questions.

For the first time, the JLI will be held in the City of London hosted in the offices of Deloitte.

“Holding the JLI in the City of London will make a new standard of Jewish adult education accessible to those people with busy working lives,” says Rabbi Bentzi Sudak who will be teaching the course.

“This course will act as a catalyst for more people to engage with important Jewish questions in a stimulating and meaningful way.”

Rabbi Eli Pink, educational director the Lubavitch Centre of Leeds, anticipates that SoulQuest will be the most popular JLI course he’s taught.

“The issues of life and death are things that we think about from time to time, but they are very rarely discussed,” explains Rabbi Pink.

“Since we all have to confront these issues at different points in our lives, this course is practical and relevant for everyone.”

Chabad of Hendon will also be teaching the JLI course.

“Many people in Hendon have attended Jewish schools," explains Rabbi Dovid Katz, educational director at Chabad of Hendon.

“Although they have a solid basis in Jewish education, this course appeals to people because it take a a totally different and fresh perspective on fundamental issues to do with life, death and the soul.”

The course will also take place at Lubavitch of Edgware, while at Lubavitch of Radlett Rabbi Alexnder Dubrawsky is offering a brand new JLI course designed especially for teenagers which explores modern real life issues in the light Jewish tradition.
