Limmud Chavruta: God's Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore our relationship to God and time in this world. Can we own time, or does it belong to God? Can we control it, or does it control us? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Visual Prayer

Children & Families, Shabbat

Learn how to sign the Shema and the blessings for Havdalah, as well as fun phrases, in American Sign Language. Once mastered, we will all be part of Havdalah as we sign the blessings together and make it a special ending to a special Shabbat. Bring your sense of humor and be ready to learn another way to pray. This is appropriate for families and children of all ages.

Limmud Chavruta: My Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore the concept of personal time: How do we spend our time? Should we be studying? Praying? Helping others? Looking after ourselves? All of the above? What does 'personal time' mean? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Limmud Chavruta: Our Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore the concept of communal time: our connections to Jewish and Secular calendars, and their impact on our lives. How important are they for the cohesion and survival of communities? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics and more will be used. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

Limmud Chavruta: All Time

EJ Cohen, Karen Radkowsky

Chavruta, Text & Thought

In this interactive session, we will explore our relationship to time, asking such questions as: Is time preordained? What do we remember? Is time 'progress'? Is the Messiah late? Can we time travel? We will examine ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics, and more will be utilized. Everyone is welcome, whether you have studied texts before or not, and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
