New Course to Unveil Judaism’s Answers to 25 Questions about G‑d


(Coral Gables)— Beginning Wednesday, November 9th, 7:30 pm, Chabad in Downtown Coral Gables will will offer a six-week course produced by the acclaimed Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) that unpacks Judaism’s understanding of G‑d while providing fresh, profound answers to common questions about G‑d.

How did G‑d come to be? Is G‑d a He, a She, or a They? Does G‑d have feelings? If G‑d has foreknowledge of all events, do we have free choice? Is there a place in Judaism for doubts about G‑d? These are just some of the twenty-five questions addressed in My G‑d: Defining the Divine.

Jewish culture and the Jewish people’s outlook on life are indelibly shaped by the classic Jewish understanding of G‑d. My G‑d: Defining the Divine is a one-of-a-kind course that brings to light the Jewish understanding of G‑d, from which Judaism and Jewish identity inevitably flow.

When the course kicks off on November 9th, its fast-paced lessons will lead participants towards a comprehensive understanding of Jewish monotheism. The discussions will probe philosophical topics, but the course is anchored in real life and offers accessible answers for students of all backgrounds.

“These are questions we hear all the time,” says Rabbi Avraham Stolik of Chabad. “This course is the first time there’s an address where you can get straight answers to all the big questions you might have about G‑d.”

Rabbi Stolik says this new course is the perfect offering for anyone with sincere questions about G‑d or who just seeks an enhanced understanding of Judaism’s approach to this core topic.

The course will be offered in-person as well as over Zoom. Sign-in information will be provided upon enrollment.

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

Interested students may call 305-490-7572 or visit ChabadGables.com/JLI for registration and for other course-related information.
