Each of the four terms has ten two-hour classes over twenty weeks; there are two terms per year. Classes are held via Google Hangouts so that everyone can interact with everyone else in a video environment.
In addition to the classes, one-on-one sessions are held each month with each student to further their development and spiritual growth in their personal faith.
The first term, “Beginner,” is held twice a year for all new students. The next term starts in April 2017.
Following that term, students move into one of the three remaining terms which are repeated in sequence. In each of those three terms, there is a primary focus, but all three areas – Jewish, Multi-Faith, and Maggidut – are touched upon.
