Writing Gratitude
Mondays, February 21-March 28                                      6:30 p.m.
Using both Mishkan T’fillah and This Grateful Heart: Psalms and Prayers for a New Day as sources of inspiration, we’ll talk and write about gratitude. Among our explorations: gratitude as a spiritual practice; the impact of prayer on gratitude and the impact of gratitude on prayer; gratitude as a spiritual practice; and ways to use writing to deepen our awareness of how gratitude can impact our attitudes about both the blessings and the challenges of our lives.

Words of Torah
Wednesdays, February 23-March 30       10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in person & Zoom
Join our Liturgist in Residence Alden Solovy for a six-week adventure in exploring Torah through deep examination of individual words of Torah drawn from the weekly Torah portion. Building on his work for his forthcoming book from CCAR Press – These Words: Poetic Midrash on the Language of Torah – we’ll explore how our understanding of one word can impact both the simple meaning of the text, as well as the implications for Midrashic interpretation.
