Transdenominational Jewish Learning
"When even two people gather to study holy words, the presence of God dwells with them." -Pirkei Avot 3:3
One People One Book is a citywide year of transdenominational learning produced by the Board of Rabbis of Southern California with the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
More than 500 people from area congregations, plus unaffiliated readers, have engaged in a year-long study of a significant Jewish book or books in various educational settings, including formal presentations; discussions in classes, book clubs and havurot; and traditional hevruta (partnered) learning.
The Board of Rabbis has produced extensive sourcebooks and lesson plans for participating synagogues to use in their adult learning programs.
