L’hagid: The Power of Our Stories

Throughout 5771, our shul engaged in an aspect of learning through the lessons, ideas, morals, ethics and history which can be drawn from the stories of our Jewish tradition. While much of what we have to express is done through the written word, it is when the word is crafted as story that we experience a more profound meaning from these words. Stories help us to make sense of the world and our place in it. And when we share stories with others, we can draw them into a richer and more powerfully connected experience within a sphere of understanding and being that enriches all of our lives.
