PURSUING EDUCATIONAL POSSIBILITIES (PEP)
Sundays, March 19 am
Judaism offers us great opportunities to learn about our traditions, the world and ourselves. PEP is an ongoing Sunday morning learning opportunity enjoyed by BHC congregants. It’s time to sign up for the spring semester. This spring, Dr. Susanna Garfein will teach “Wisdom Literature” at 9:30 am. Wisdom Literature is concerned with the realities of the human experience, from the mundane to the sublime, and with the relationship between the human experience and the divine. In this course, we will consider the books of the Bible that belong to this category of literature. Namely, we will survey the books of Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes as well as Wisdom Literature from the ancient Near East. Rabbi Sachs-Kohen will teach “Spiritual Teachings of Chassidic Masters” at 10:45 am. Study with Rabbi Sachs-Kohen some of the texts she has learned in her fellowship with the Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS). Having only dipped her toes in, she will not presume to TEACH you these texts, but rather will plan to study them together with you. The semester continues on the following Sundays throughout the spring: March 1 & 15 and April 19.
