Panim Hadashot-New Faces sees Jewish learning as an essential part of living a rich Jewish life. While our courses will vary over time, we offer classes that engage in real life issues and engage in the rich textual history of the Jewish people. Rabbi Gartenberg has long been regarded as one of the most dynamic teachers of Torah in Seattle. We hope to expand our offerings in the future. Please share your suggestions of classes and topics with Rabbi Gartenberg.
