The Gates of the Azarah - Part I
A Map of The Holy Temple, Lesson 1 | Tuesday, June 29

In this class we will explore the meaning and purpose of the many gates of the ‘Azarah’ (the main Temple courtyard). While mapping the gates along the walls of the Azarah, we will ‘take a tour’ inside the Temple, and discover some of its daily activities.  

The Gates of the Azarah - Part II
A Map of The Holy Temple, Lesson 2 | Tuesday, July 6

In this class we will be introduced to the Talmudic discussion as to the exact number of gates in the ‘Azarah’. This argument will lead us to discover new meaning in the definition of each gate.

Structuring a Synagogue
A Map of The Holy Temple, Lesson 3 | Tuesday, July 13
