Adult Ed Class: Preparation for the High Holy Days
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Thursday, September 9, 2021
Join in anticipation of the High Holy Days in a study of Rabbi Alan Lew’s This Is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared: The Days of Awe as a Journey of Awakening. The book is available on Amazon and other book sellers for $16 – $18 in paperback, and less for the kindle version. Everyone is encouraged to read chapter one before the first session.
Ellie Mout, a relatively new member of the Temple community and a member of the Adult Education Committee, will facilitate the group. You may have seen her singing for High Holy Days or Shabbat services, but she also loves studying Torah, and is a certified Yoga Health Coach.
According to Rabbi Lew, “The journey I will describe in these pages is one of self-discovery, spiritual discipline, self-forgiveness, and evolution.” The goal of this group is to go through the practices in the book together, facilitating this journey. “(High Holy Days) is the journey the soul takes to transform itself and evolve, the journey from boredom and staleness – from deadness – to renewal.”
This Adult Ed group will be held on Wednesdays, from 6 to 7 pm from August 11 through September 8. Whether you have studied in preparation for the holidays in years past or it is your first time, it will be a rewarding experience. The group is open to everyone. There is no charge and no registration needed.
The Zoom link will be provided in the weekly Temple email.
