In this fall session, we explore the universal themes of
creation/stewardship, redemption and forgiveness, gratitude, and
what's really important in life. We will then see how the
particular rituals and texts associated with the Jewish fall
holidays, (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret),
provide perspectives - some 3,500 years in the making - for
wrestling with these themes.
This is not a “how to celebrate” class; rather, it frames rituals as responses to the human condition, which we benefit from by revisiting each year.
