About the Course

This Four-Week Jewpernatural Course Promises to Clear Up Paranormal Questions, and offers up Judaism’s Most Satisfying Answers on Dreams, Astrology, Demons, and Ghosts

Although the resurgence of public interest in the paranormal is new, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Our upcoming course unearths the Jewish perspective on dreams, astrology, spirits, and other enduring mysteries.

The Jewish tradition has probed these issues for three millennia, these are legitimate topics which deserve meaningful and satisfying explanations.

The course will address the anxiety driving interest in the paranormal without getting bogged down in the spooky detail. We will discuss how we can find comfort and refocus our energy on what matters most.

The trend toward the paranormal encompasses a broad spectrum of beliefs, including jinxes, demons, spirits, communicating with the deceased, and astrology. To satisfy this curiosity, Jewpernatural addresses everything from the role of angels and the efficacy of the “evil eye” to whether the stars have much to say about your future.

The course will offer a thoughtful, satisfying, and relevant perspective rooted in authentic Jewish thought.
