Topic: The Fragility of Life and the Meaning of Time: A Psychological and Philosophical Look at the Laws and Customs of the Holiday Season
In the Jewish calendar, the fall is designated as a time of renewal, repentance and reflection. An effective holiday season not only leaves one’s slate clean of sins but also prepares one for a year of personal development and growth. This class will study the laws and customs of this time period with an eye towards understanding their psychological and philosophical underpinnings. By the end of the seven sessions, we hope to not only gain insight into the character of the holiday season but also gain a better understanding of our own character, enabling us to effectively chart a productive course for the year ahead
Barbara Freedman 12:20-13:35
Topic: Family Matters: Biblical Images and Modern Reflections
An examination of the narratives in the Torah studied through the prism of family relationships. Families form a complex web of relationships, especially when dealing with the “first families” of the Jewish nation. Each week we will focus one of these issues through in depth text study and mefarshim. Husbands and Wives -working together and apart; Parents and Children – Trying to make the right choices, blessings and tragic errors; Siblings -rivalries and support. Please bring a tanach.
