LETTER LIFT OFF, FLIGHT TWO

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10

The numerology (gematria) of the Hebrew letters has been a source of fascination for thousands of years.  It plays a major role in Jewish mysticism. 

Facilitated by Community Chaplain Rabbi Jonathan R. Katz, the second Letter Lift Off workshop will focus on this aspect of the Alef-Bet as well explore notable Hebrew root meanings and several of the intriguing, if not mysterious, Hebrew letter irregularities found in the Torah.  Additionally, the workshop will shed light on the age-old question:  What exactly is a hapax legomenon? 

Like the popular first Letter Lift Off held in August, participants will encounter Hebrew in stimulating and insightful new ways.  No previous Hebrew learning is required.

The workshop presents an opportunity to experience Jewish learning from a fresh perspective and in uncharacteristic dimensions.  There is no cost to attend.
