Tikkun Leil Shavuot: 21st Century Jews

This coming June we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Sixth Day War.
  • What has been the impact of the Sixth Day War on our self image and the image of the Jewish people in the world?
  • How do we see ourselves differently than previous generations of Jews? Do we tell the story of our history the same way? Do we react to threats to our people in the same way? Should we?
  • Do we see ourselves as underdogs or superheroes? Or both? How does our self-perception affect our behavior?
Join us after dinner for a provocative text study session and discussion. 6:00 PM Delicious Shavuot Dinner 6:45 PM Shavuot services at the waterfront (weather permitting) 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM Study Session with Rabbi Rosenbaum: Twenty-First Century Jews: Vulnerable Underdogs or Powerful Superheroes?

This class is open to everyone in the congregation, whether or not you are participating in the Reading the Whole Bible project. The Bible is the basis of everything Jewish. There is so much in it: melodramatic stories that would make the writers of Game of Thrones blush, law, poetry, parables, prayers. How do we make sense of it all?  Join us as we study the Bible at a level of depth and intensity that will enlighten and enchant you. Among the many questions we will consider:
  • Who wrote the Bible? What did our ancestors think? Why do modern scholars differ?
  • How do Jews study the Bible? What are the kinds of questions Jews ask when we study the Bible? How can an in depth study of the Bible give us an understanding of the evolution of Jewish thought and belief over 3000 years?
  • How do Christians and Muslims understand the Bible differently than we do?
  • What does the Bible have to say to us? What does the Bible have to teach us about God, human psychology and the meaning of it all?

This class is recommended for conversion students. Click for registration and details.
