We will discuss some of the big questions most people have about religion, and particularly about Jewish faith. Although it is called "UnOrthodox" Jewish beliefs, we will be discussing many sources in our tradition that yield some answers that we might find very modern and enlightened. We will also consider some more modern Jewish thinkers. And, of course, we will have fun doing it!
