High Holidays Learning Opportunities

September 20, 2020, 12:00pm

Second Day Rosh Hashannah Discussion and Study with Eliana Hall, R.J.E.

"Ma Tovu, How good are your tents, Jacob, your dwellings, Israel!" With these words, the prophet Balaam turns a curse into a blessing. Traditionally, our liturgy uses this blessing to refer to synagogues, our communal houses of worship. This year, as we celebrate Rosh Hashanah each from our own dwelling, what blessings are our individual tents worthy of? How do we, like Balaam, turn this unique Rosh Hashanah experience into genuine joy and praise.

You can register HERE for the program.  We will send you the Zoom information via email.
