High Holiday Workshop: It’s Almost Time for… Rosh Hashanah
Wed, Sep 9 @ 7:00 pm
One event on Sep 13, 2020 at 11:00 am
Rabbi Neil Sandler will be offering two pre-Rosh Hashanah workshops on the theme, God ‘Testing” Abraham… and Us: Really? Every year, on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, we read the Akedah story, the near-sacrifice of Isaac. At the beginning of the story, the Torah informs us that God “tested” Abraham. In what sense, if any, did God test Abraham? What can we learn from this biblical moment that speaks to our challenging moments – both personally and collectively as we now find ourselves during the pandemic? Both workshops cover the same material, so pick one of the dates (above) that works best for you.
