This spring, the Chabad Center will offer This Can Happen: A credible case for feeling good about the future, a new six-session virtual course by the acclaimed Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) that will address a pressing question on many minds: is the current situation going to get any better?
“Many people nurse this idea that matters are getting progressively worse, and, fostered by much hysterical media and general dialogue, an environment of fear and despair is all too rampant,” said Rabbi Levi Teldon, course instructor. “Exploring the science of world history and looking at the actual facts paint an eye-opening picture, one that can provide real, practical hope.”
The course will be presented live via Zoom at two convenient times:
- 6 Tuesdays, 12:00-1:30 P.M beginning April 27.
- 6 Wednesdays, 7:30-9:00 P.M. beginning April.
Students who enroll in this course will embark on a journey that will explore one of the most misunderstood and maligned topics in the Jewish canon—the future redemption.
This Can Happen presents audiences with an opportunity to finally appreciate what Judaism really means when it talks about a “Messiah.” Considering that for many in the modern world, utopian visions of world peace and endless bounty sound like the stuff of fairy tales, this course summons the sources and the data to dispel such primitive notions and educate audiences that the Messianic era is a deep, broad climax to the entire story of the universe.
This Can Happen is designed to appeal to people at all levels of knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning; attendees need not be affiliated with a synagogue, temple, or other houses of worship.
