    Course Overview

    My G-d: Defining the Divine

    Nothing is off-limits as this refreshingly open course asks piercing questions about G-d and delivers profound, insightful answers. An enlightening study into G-d's nature, G-d's goal for creation, human experiences of G-d, the role of religion, and the function of miracles and prayer, this course promises to satisfy your questions, including those you didn't know you had.

    Lesson Outline

    Lesson One: The Basics Let's become familiar with G-d's basic bio:
    What is G-d and where is He? Does G-d have a gender? And who created G-d?

    Lesson Two: His Nature Let's learn a bit about how G-d operates:
    Does G-d have feelings? Does He communicate with us? Does He ever act illogically? Why does He have so many names? And why is it that many write 'G-d' with a hyphen?

    Lesson Three: His Reasons Let's discover why G-d does what he does:
    Why did G-d create me, does He need me? And why did He create evil, does He need evil? Can I question G-d? And why is He described in the Bible as 'wrathful' and 'jealous'?

    Lesson Four: His Expectations Let's discuss G-d's expectations of us:
    Do I have to believe in G-d to be Jewish? What if I have doubts about G-d?
    Do I need to fear G-d? That doesn't sound very appealing!
    Lastly, I'm okay with believing in G-d, but I'm not religious. Can I still have a relationship with Him?

    Lesson Five: His Paradoxes Let's delve into some of the deeper Divine mysteries and enigmas:
    Can G-d create a rock that He can't lift? Does His foreknowledge of events preclude my free choice? Is there anything that G-d finds difficult to do? And if G-d has decided to do something, can I change His mind?

    Lesson Six: Our Relationship Let's deepen our understanding of our relationship with G-d:
    Why can't we see G-d? Because we can't see Him, can we reconcile His existence with science?
    Why is Judaism so obsessed with idolatry, is G-d jealous?
    Last of all: I'm a spiritual person; do I need to follow the Torah's system to have a relationship with G-d?
