Texts of Rosh HaShanah: Tuesday, July 31, 8:30am OR 6:30pm

Enrich your High Holy Days experience with Rabbi Sarah Reines as she leads a close reading into some of the texts that define this season of reflection and renewal. Through this study, using traditional and modern sources, we will examine how they resound with the larger themes of these intensely sacred days and emerge with a deeper sense of connection to our personal explorations and those of our ancestors.

Please, if you're able, plan to attend both sessions.

A Crash Course in Jewish Prayer

Tuesday, July 10, 6:30pm or Monday, July 23, 8:30am

"I don't really understand the prayers, Rabbi." If ever you've uttered these words or even had the thought, join Rabbi Mosbacher for a crash course to decode and demystify Jewish prayer. We'll look at the design of a Shabbat service and the meaning behind the prayers that comprise it, and explore the difference between keva, the fixed prayers we recite, and kavannah, the intention with which we say them.
