The Circle of Life: Exploring the connection between birth and death in Rabbinic text

 

with Rabbi Ariana Capptauber via Zoom

Wednesdays July 1st and 8th

11:00 am - 12:15 pm

On Rosh Hashanah we celebrate the birth of the world, and on Yom Kippur we recall our mortality and remember those who have died. What is the connection between these themes? Birth and death appear to be opposites, but perhaps we could imagine them as more connected, part of a continuum. In this two part course we will look at rabbinic texts on birth and death and explore the connection between these seemingly opposite poles-- in the rabbis' minds and in our own. 

RSVP to Patty at Beth El Temple, patty@bethelhbg.org, to receive study materials for these sessions.

Pay - lamed - lamed is the Hebrew root word of "prayer". The word palel means to pray for, or to believe possible. As part of our listening and learning sessions, we heard that people wanted a "Hebrew School for Adults", to deepen their participation in prayer services, including minyan, and to be able to lead services. This hour of learning is our first project. We're excited to grow with you.

Membership

We warmly invite you to come by Saturday mornings for our Shabbat services, join our daily morning or evening minyan, sing with us at havdala, or come participate in some of our fabulous programs and events.

Last year was a busy one. We celebrated Rabbi Muroff's 25 years with our congregation. We sang wordless melodies and long "amens" with Joey Weisenberg. We delved into Tales of the Talmud with Rabbi Ilyse. We read essays from the book The Fire Within Us. Our kids, through Gesher, learned about their Jewish heritage, and also celebrated growing up with faith, meeting children from different traditions.
