Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Adult Ed class taught by Rabbi Alanna - Making Life Richer through Ritual

January 30, 2022 - 10:00am

Making Life Richer through Ritual is the title of Rabbi Alanna's class this winter, a 3-part class on Sundays - January 23 & 30 and February 6, 2022. Attend 1, 2, or all 3!

"Extending our fingertips towards the mezuzah on the front door, placing our phone in a basket by the door as we prepare to walk to the table to light shabbat candles, immersing in the transformative waters of a mikvah, opening to a certain oil-stained page of a family cookbook to prepare for the first night of Hanukkah, taking a walk around the block with your best friend to mark the end of shiva – our tradition is full of ritual that offers us tools to transform mundane moments into sacred time.  Together, we will dive into Jewish ritual across the life-span, explore what makes ritual “work” so well for us human beings, and begin to create our own new rituals to mark moments in our own contemporary lives." says Rabbi Alanna.
