The Project Genesis Basic Class Index

Welcome to the basic classes from Project Genesis! Project Genesis offers a wide (and growing) range of classes to Jewish seekers across the Internet, on Jewish philosophy, liturgy, ethics and law. These are the Introductory classes - those that explain terms and concepts on a sufficiently basic level that people with limited backgrounds are able to understand them. Basic, however, does not intend to imply lower level. Some of these classes are quite involved. Join as many as meet your interests, because all classes are free -- and you can subscribe or unsubscribe at any time.
