Course Description:
This two-part mini course provides lifelong learners with an understanding of the two most prominent, non-Levitical celebrations of Purim and Chanukah, as well as an overview of other significant (mostly modern) observances on the Jewish calendar. The aim is to put them into context in relation to our understanding of Scripture, prophecy, and Messiah.

This MSI LIVE ONLINE course meets LIVE via Zoom on two consecutive Wednesdays, March 23 & 30, but the LIVE ONLINE sessions for this course will be recorded and available to revisit whenever you desire. The videos will be uploaded as soon as possible after the LIVE ONLINE sessions in the Course Contents. We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these LIVE courses so you can get the most out of lifelong learning with MSI. While not ideal, you may also register for this course if you cannot attend the live sessions and engage the videos at your own pace.
