Derech Hashem - The Way of God

Derech Hashem - The Way of God

LIVE online course in the Academy of Shem.  All classes recorded as well.

An important aspect of leadership will be to help people in your community deal with spiritual or other issues that people will have. These classes will give some basic techniques to help steer the individual in the direction they need to go or when to bring in a professional.

These classes will examine the physical and spiritual creation of man and his purpose in the world. We will also look at how the non-Jews in general and Noahides specifically fit in the scheme of creation and their interaction with the Jewish people.

These five sessions will count towards the Nagid Continuing Ed program for the International Torah Fellowship.
