Take a journey with us through the entire Jewish calendar year as the noted author and columnist, Abigail Pogrebin did in her new book. My Jewish Year will be used as our text and guide with many ancillary embellishments. The goal is to explore the rhythm and purposes of every holiday including festivals, high holidays, fasts and latter year commemorations. Why do we have so many special days? And how do they relate to each other.? What are the emotions they invoke and what is their relevance and meaning in today’s world.? This is a clever way to catch up for those who don’t know.
Copies of “My Jewish Year” are available at the Yeshiva for $15. Instructor: Marden Paru; Fee $60
