10/26- Becoming a Bigger Person
10/5- What Now after Rosh Hashanah?
In this class we discussed the theme of Rosh HaShana, what we read from the Torah, and how it should inform us with the perspective moving forward in approaching the days of repentance.
9/28- Asking for Life
In this class we discuss the value of life, and what the Talmud means when it says it is better to never have been born! What should WE mean when we ask for life on Rosh haShanah?
9/21- The Anger of Love
In this class we discussed the structure of the Parsha and why it would be that way. We touched on a general idea about relationships in explaining a piece of Talmud which informs the structure of the Parsha.
In this class we discussed the mitzvah of Sha’atnez and from where it is (symbolically) derived. In our analysis, we learn about its connection to Cain and Abel and what that can teach us about ourselves, especially during Elul.
