Introduction to Chassidus - Announcing the Second Course

The first six week Chassidus course with Rabbi Moshe Miller at Lubavitch Chabad of Skokie was very enjoyable and a true learning experience for all of the participants. You are invited to attend the next course in this series.

This course will focus on the overall topic of “אין עוד מלבדו There is nothing beside Him - So how did we get to be here?”

We will trace the origin of the subject to a posuk in Torah; elaborate its meaning, logic and how it is connected with other concepts in Torah and Chassidus; discuss different understandings of the concept by different authorities.

Basic familiarity with Hebrew reading and translating required. This course is ideal for individuals who have some experience with learning Chassidus, whether it is simply attending shiurim at a Shul or a Chabad House, or even yeshiva graduates. Men and women are welcome.

This six week Chassidus course with Rabbi Moshe Miller will begin on January 6, 2013, and will meet on Sundays at 8pm at Lubavitch Chabad of Skokie 4059 Dempster Street.

Tuition for this course is $60. Study materials are included, and there will be homework assignments and mini tests so you can monitor your progress and your retention of the material.

For more information please contact Dovid Lapson, robertlaps@comcast.net, or Rabbi Moshe,moshemiller@yahoo.com, or call us.
