Ongoing Weekly Adult Education Class – Thursdays

Judaism’s Spiritual Vocabulary: Discovering Meaning in the Siddur (Thursdays following morning Minyan)

Class will meet weekly on an ongoing basis.

9:15-10:15 a.m. IN PERSON AND ONLINE

The prayers in the siddur are the spiritual vocabulary of the Jewish people: they help us praise and thank God in times of joy, lament and mourn in times of sadness, and give us words to speak when our own words fail us. Like other forms of poetry, our prayerbook uses vivid imagery to stir our emotions, affirm the majesty and mystery of life, and attempt to express the inexpressible. In this class, Rabbi Stoller will guide us in exploring the siddur in all its many facets: its structure, its language, its history and evolution, and its relevance as a living spiritual vocabulary for our own lives.  

Bagels and coffee will be served.
