New Class With Yael Werber Exploring The Meaning Of "Eit Ratzon"

Beginning Tuesday October 27 at 7:30 PM

Continuing Tuesday:

  • November 10 by Zoom (PW 18)
  • November 24 by Zoom (PW 18)
  • December 8 by Zoom (PW 18)
  • December 22 by Zoom (PW 18)

The theme of our class is eit ratzon, which means a time of desire. What does it mean to be in a time of desire, or wanting? How do we pray effectively when we are there? How are we most able to be heard? Is there a special time of day for these types of prayers? We will explore Jewish texts that grapple with these questions, and seek to find the answers and guidelines that the rabbis of the Talmud, midrash and mystical tradition offer us in our times of longing.

Live Streaming Shabbat Morning Services

Every Shabbat Morning from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Please join us for Shabbat services, which Rabbi Berman will lead from our chapel. We hope to develop a Shabbat morning experience that feels meaningful to those who are viewing remotely. This will be an iterative process, as we experiment with different forms of prayer, Torah, divrei tefila and divrei Torah.
