For Life "L'Chayim"
Get Closer To What Matters
In an era of disinformation clichés and half-truths, it is sometimes hard to find one's true north. Easy to give up and settle for empty platitudes and the dubious.
The 21st century offers an unprecedented vantage point from where to look at our human nature. As many of the facts of the past are now seen in a new perspective, the courses taught online at the 21st Century Judaism Meriane Albagli Geni Cassorla Jewish Studies Academy, provide sober mental tools to better understand the world we live in.
In their totality, the courses at the MAGC Jewish Studies Academy cover the literature, history, religion, and social dynamics of the Jewish people. Pick courses individually or plan a two years degree and certification.
Why should I take these courses?
"It is not the exposition of ideas which is meaningful but the performance of deeds," teaches the Mishnah (Avot 1: 17). "You shall not stand idly by the blood of your fellow human being" (Leviticus 19: 16). These are some of the Jewish values that together with learning imbue these courses.
This is a not-for-profit program. After covering the production and operational expenses, the money collected from these courses goes to charity. In paying for your course you are fulfilling at least four "mitzvot" (good deeds) of Judaism: Learning, putting your knowledge into practice, not remaining indifferent to others, helping those in need.
By reading this you have completed your first lesson about the culture, religion, literature, history and ethics of Judaism.
