How often have you wanted to contribute to discussions on Judaism, but held back because you didn’t feel you knew enough in general or about a particular topic?

How many New Year’s resolutions have you made to include just a little more Jewish study in your life and how many years have you been unable to enroll in classes because there’s just no time?

How surprised would you be to discover that you are not alone and that The Jewish Theological Seminary has just launched a solution to help?
