The Shabbat Evening Service: a Guided Tour
Ever wonder how the service came to include the prayers we now recite every Shabbat? Are you curious about what different prayers mean and why they were included? This class will explore the origins, organization, and meaning of the prayers which are part of the Friday evening services. No knowledge of Hebrew or familiarity with the Friday evening service necessary.
Taught by Rabbi Jonah Zinn
What can we learn about ourselves from our national story?
Using various times in our Jewish history, we will explore what our expansive Jewish history can tell us today about who we are and what it means to be Jewish in 2018. We will look at our history to answer such questions as:
How did we become Jews while losing a war?
Why is it that the nicer we act, the more we are despised?
Is there a correct way to be Jewish, and is it ours?
Were we chosen-and if so, for what-and how are we doing?
Taught by Dr. Bob Taxman
