Next up on ‘Sanctuary:’ Jewish Learning Never Stops

This episode of "Sanctuary" is now available for viewing. Watch it now.

For the People of the Book, learning is a commandment, a lifelong imperative that can take many forms.

This Sunday, Feb. 23, the public-affairs program "Sanctuary," which airs at 11 a.m. on ABC7-Channel 7, explores the rich world of Jewish learning for adults, a world that can immerse students in the centuries-old wisdom of sages and transform how they view their own lives today.

From rabbinic scholars to neophytes with little Jewish background and no knowledge of Hebrew, there's a program for just about everyone, regardless of age, observance or denomination.

Featured are the Florence Melton School for Adult Jewish Learning; Svara: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva; Yeshiva University Torah Mitzion Kollel; and the collection of educational programs offered by JCC Chicago. Rabbi Michael Balinsky of the Chicago Board of Rabbis serves as guide.

This episode is hosted by Cindy Sher.

Starting the week of Feb. 24, the program will be available for viewing here.

"Sanctuary" is a joint production of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and the Chicago Board of Rabbis, in cooperation with ABC7-Channel 7.
