FALL 2020 Offerings
Special High Holy Day learning with Rabbi Jason Rodich:
Teshuva and Tochecha: Returning to Myself and Inviting My Beloveds to Return.
Via Zoom. Link will be sent out to participants the day before the event.
Wednesday, September 23 at 12noon – 1:00pm PDT
As we prepare for the High Holy Days, join Rabbi Rodich to explore Jewish thought about the customs of teshuva (often translated as “return” or”repentance”) and tochecha (often translated as critical feedback or rebuke).
How does Judaism invite us to be our highest selves, and what guidance does our tradition offer us when we need to tell a loved one that we need for them to do better? In this session, we will explore ancient texts on these customs and investigate ways in which they might offer wisdom for our lives. Texts will be provided that may be useful for further reflection over the Yamim Nora’im, The High Holy Days & Days of Awe.
Our lectures feature outstanding speakers who will engage in intriguing and thought-provoking conversations about contemporary topics vital to our community and to our lives. Please visit our Lectures page.
At Emanu-El, we are an active community of lifelong Jewish learners – in the endless pursuit of spiritual growth and exploration. As Jews, we are compelled to question and debate. These conversations energize us as we gain new perspectives and challenge our own long-held beliefs. Our shared desire for knowledge and for community enriches us as individuals and bonds us as a congregation. Emanu-El thrives when we are learning together. We hope that you will find time on your calendar and in your mind to join us on a thought-provoking and powerful Jewish journey.
