Project Zug 2023

Congregation Har HaShem has partnered with Project Zug!

Project Zug (www.projectzug.org) empowers Jews to take ownership over their learning through one-on-one havruta learning (learning with a partner). Project Zug provides the learning materials in an online format, along with video instructions from amazing teachers, so that you can learn together with your partner. Classes are either four sessions or ten sessions. 

There are two ways to engage in Project Zug.

  1. IF YOU HAVE A STUDY PARTNER: Sign up for any course you like – one of over 30 courses – but you need to register with a partner. All the courses can be found here
     

  2. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A STUDY PARTNER: If you have no partner, but would like one OR if you and your partner want to study the same topic as others in the congregation, then choose this option. The course we will be studying together is Intro to the Jewish Bookshelf.  Below is the course description:
    The Jewish people have long been called the People of the Book, a fitting name given our deep love for the Jewish textual tradition. For hundreds of years, we've pored over the same sacred texts in an attempt to unlock their wisdom, understand their relevance, and take part in a dialogue and debate that spans generations. Yet, it can be difficult to enter into this conversation without having a good sense of what these foundational books are, how they work, and how to best bring them into our own libraries and lives.

    In this course, we'll take a close look at the essential core texts that make up the Jewish Bookshelf beginning with the Torah. In the course of our study, we will learn not only what these texts are and how they work but we'll use them as an entryway into conversations about creation in the Torah, self-defense in rabbinic texts, and revelation through the eyes of modern thinkers.

 
The cost for Project Zug: $36 per person



Please make sure your havruta has signed up as well.
