Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur Learning Opportunities

High Holidays are often considered the most meaningful days in the Jewish calendar. You can make yours the most meaningful with a little advance preparation. Join us for one or both of our learning options, listed below, in preparation for the High Holidays.

Keep reading to see what we offered in 2022!

Pre-Rosh Hashanah Class: Learning to Listen, Learning to Cry
Thursday September 22 | 5:00 - 6:15pm
W11 Main Dining Room
 
The Torah describes Rosh Hashanah as a “day when the shofar is sounded.” What can we learn from a day that asks us to listen? What are the qualities of listening that we might learn from this holiday? What does listening require of us? 
 
Join Shoshana for a facilitated conversation in preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Dinner will be served, so please RSVP in advance so that we can provide enough food. 
 
Pre-Yom Kippur Class: Teshuva and Restorative Justice
Thursday September 29 | 5:00 - 6:15pm
W11 Hillel Lounge
 
The High Holidays are a time for Teshuva often translated as repentance, but maybe more accurately translated as return. 
 
Explore and discuss concepts of teshuva and restorative justice in conversation with each other over dinner with Natalie and a group of your peers. Please RSVP in advance so that we can provide enough food.
