Meet the Beatles...and the 10 Greatest Ideas of Judaism!

Instructor: Dr. Stephen Arnoff

All you need is love. I believe in yesterday. Let it be. These lines may represent some of the universal wisdom of the Beatles, but they are also signature ideas of Judaism. Each week we will explore one of the core teachings of Jewish tradition intertwined with the music and imagination of the world's greatest band, the Beatles. 

L'Chaim (To Life!), Tzelem Elohim (Creation in God's Image), and Talmud Torah (Teach Them to Your Children) are just some of the core principles of Judaism that careful listening to the Beatles both affirms as profound Jewish ways of living, but also the power and purpose of Jewish wisdom as it is embedded in the world. Join us for a Jewish Magical Mystery Tour!
