  • Experiencing the Biblical Psalms — from Remorse to Rejoicing, from Hopelessness to Hope, from Doubt to Faith - Class 5

    July 17th, 2024  |  1 hr 22 mins

    The Psalms express and evoke profound and wide-ranging emotions and thoughts that are as real today as they were three thousand years ago. Together we will engage in an interactive in-depth reading of ten Psalms — poems in which the authors use language, structure, and themes to convey their expressions of profound feelings that run the gamut of emotions. Fluency in Hebrew is not required, but it helps.

    This class, which centers on Psalm 23, was conduced via Zoom on July 16, 2024.

  • Judaism is About Love — Recovering the Heart of Jewish Life - Class 4

    July 11th, 2024  |  1 hr 11 mins

    Recently, a book with this title hit the bookstores. In the book it’s author, Rabbi Shai Held (a Conservative rabbi) tells us that, for too long, Judaism has been mistakenly characterized as a legalistic, judgmental faith tradition. In response Rav Held proceeds to draw upon a rich compendium of sources representing 3000 years of Jewish learning and living to teach us that, beyond a shadow of doubt, love is the dominant foundational Jewish principle. Judaism is, indeed, about love. We will read the book over the course of ten weeks (it is a substantial tome) and meet weekly to discuss Held’s analysis and study selected primary sources from which he draws his Torah.

    The fourth discussion in this series took place via Zoom on July 10, 2024
