New Class facilitated by Rabbi Weiner: Dimensions of Loss and Healing
Why does evil exist? How do we live in faith, even though…? How do we heal from loss? Discussions will stem from our reading of an evocative passage from the ancient midrash, Lamentations Rabbah. Upcoming classes: Every Shabbat afternoon in September, time varies with sundown.
Join facilitator Judith Weiner for a guided journey through Jewish texts on justice. All texts will be presented in English translation. Fall: A survey of the development of Jewish languages for believing in, speaking about and working for justice. Winter: Mapping Jewish language onto contemporary American politics. Spring: Focus on issues. Classes meet on Shabbat mornings, 9-10 a.m., following the Hebrew School schedule.
Come along with Rabbi Weiner as he explores with us the services and the imagery of the High Holiday Machzor (prayerbook). As we all seek meaning and renewal during this special season, he will share his struggles with us, and give us the opportunity to share ours too! Mondays, Aug. 24 and 31 at 7:00 pm and Sat., Sept. 5, Selichot, at 7:00 pm.
It is customary to visit the graves of loved ones. We will hold a memorial service at the Knesset Israel Cemetery on Peck’s Rd. on Sunday, September 6, at 10 a.m. Rabbi Weiner will be available after the service to offer memorial prayers by individual gravestones. If this time is not convenient for you, you may also visit the cemetery on your own at other times; a gate key is available in the synagogue office.
