Join us for these special Learners’ Shabbats, where a key theme of contemporary Jewish life is wedded to both the portion of the week and a prayer from the liturgy. Together we’ll be weaving connections between ancient words and living souls.
January 11: Between Song, Sea and Sap: Spirituality and Flow (Portion: Beshallach, Shabbat Shira; Prayer: Mi Chamocha)
January 25: Commandment and Choice: How should post modern Jews relate to
Jewish law? (Portion: Mishpatim; Prayer: Ahava Rabbah)
Feb. 1: Love and Loneliness: Why 1 is not the loneliest number (Portion: Terumah; Prayer: Sh’ma)
March 1: Getting to Grateful: Developing an attitude of gratitude (Portion Vayikra ; Prayer: Morning Blessings)
March 15: Unity and Payback: Is revenge ever a good thing? (Portion: Zachor; Prayer: Alenu)
