Rabbi Danziger
Counting Down to the Awesome 80s (Rosh Hashanah 5780)  

A Jewish new year is approaching, but what is the real significance of Rosh Hashanah?  What role has it played in the life of the Jewish people, and how might it resonate in our own?  Stories, poetry, Jewish texts, observances through history and more will have us ready when “New Years Eve” arrives.

The David Story

The story of King David’s life in the Hebrew Bible is the earliest known full biography – from birth to death – of any historical figure. Together, we will explore the life, legend, and legacy of this most famous King of Israel, who continues to capture people’s imaginations thousands of years after his death.

Rabbi Kamrass
Honesty, Truth, Lies and the Power of Words

Our tradition considers the power of words with great urgency.  In a cultural landscape where words are cheap, truth is elastic, and even debased, this session with Rabbi Kamrass will examine important Jewish texts and teaching about honesty, lies (when such speech is both prohibited and permitted), and the power of our words to shape character and reputation.
