New Class! Adult Discover Judaism Class: Life-cycles with R' Shalom Bochner, Tuesdays in January

Discover Judaism:  Jewish Life-cycles 

with Rabbi Shalom Bochner 

on Tuesdays, January 4, 11, 18, 25; Time: 7:30 to 9pm                  

The rhythm of a Jewish life is based on recognizing the sacred in moments of transition from one phase to the next.  This class will explore the prayers and rituals that have developed around birth, covenanting, coming of age, partnering, separation, and death.   Text-study and discussion will be the basis for these conversations directed toward adding meaning to our understandings of the passage of time.  No Hebrew is required for this class. Class fee: $40-$60—(sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds) 

Deadline to register: Thursday December 12/30. Please register by e-mail Rachel at:
