June 28, 2020 10:00AM - 11:00AM
Join us for an engaging and meaningful new Zoom class, “Deep Diving Into Our Prayers” with Cantor Levine.
In this class, we will delve into the Saturday morning service. We will explore the structure, history, and theology reflected by the prayers, in order to understand Jewish values and struggles across the centuries until today.
Together we will address the many topics confronted by the service: a Jewish lens on evil, chosenness, life after death, Jewish identity, why Kaddish, and much more.
Paraphrasing the words of Abraham Joshua Heschel, prayer is not meant to make us comfortable with our world, but to make us uncomfortable–to challenge us, to get out of our self-serving mindset, and to emerge ready to partner with God in the reparation of the world.
Sundays at 10:00 AM through the month of July. (Note: please check Brith Shalom calendar for study materials and for any possible hiatus weeks).
