Beth Jacob Weekly Ongoing Classes
- Beth Jacob Summer Series
All classes Monday evenings at 7:30 pm on the Beth Jacob Lawn“For I Desire Kindness”: Rabbinic Approaches to Reorienting and Reintegrating After Upheaval
July 12, 19, and 26 with Rabbi Tamar.
As we enter the month of Av, we’ll examine the various responses of the sages as they faced a new reality after the destruction of the Temple. What wisdom might we find in their creative reworking of ancient texts and practices and how might that inform the challenges we face in our own Jewish community today?
Next up in the Beth Jacob Summer Learning Series:
Elul Zman: Reflect. Recommit. Re-engage.
With Rabbi Adam Rubin & Rabbi Tamar Magill-Grimm
Prepare for High Holy Days by attending any or all of this 4-week series during the month of Elul. As Alan Lew reminds us, the Season of Repentance is really “a journey of transformation,” one that begins with the somberness of Tisha B’Av and takes us through the unbridled joy of Sukkot. Using Lew’s book as a resource, we’ll examine the beauty and wisdom of the prayers and rituals that guide us on that journey each year.
