The Laws of Pesach

The traditions surrounding the holiday of Pesach are both fun and challenging at times.  During this four-part series, Rabbi Creditor will present traditional and modern Jewish texts which inform some of the ritual and emotional experiences of Pesasch.  This class is beginner-friendly, and all texts will be available in English translation.  A $30 materials fee is suggested, and registration is required with Rachel in the Netivot Shalom office. 

Gemara Berachot: An Ancient Book of Blessing
with Rabbi Creditor
Tuesday nights at 7:30pm
May 5, 12, 19, 26

Jewish worship transitioned from a sacrificial system into a system of verbal prayers over a long period of time.  The decisions and struggles of the early rabbis who revolutionized Jewish Prayer are collected in the Talmud, also known as the Gemara.  The Tractate Berachot is one of the earliest conversations about Jewish Prayer, hinting at some of the paths Judaism has since adopted.  During this four-part series, Rabbi Creditor will guide participants through the first section of Gemara Berachot, using the Artscroll edition.  While all texts will be available in English translation, frequent use of the Hebrew and Aramaic original will be part of the learning.  Participants should have a copy of the ArtScroll Gemara Brachot (Volume 1), which is available at Afikomen.  This class is free, but registration is required with Rachel in the Netivot Shalom office.
