Elul Boot Camp - Preparing Ourselves for the High Holidays
On Wednesdays August 18, 25 and September 1 We will welcome three guest teachers during our usual Torah Study time - 10:00-11:30am. Please register to join us for any or all of these wonderful learning opportunities to help us prepare ourselves for the High Holidays:

August 18: “Ki Anu Amecha - We are Your people and You are our ____________:” Exploring the multi-faceted relationship between us and God using the metaphors found in High Holiday prayers and songs.
with Rabbi Larry Karol

August 25: Self-awareness as Prerequisite for Holding Oneself Accountable
Self-awareness, or intra-personal intelligence, is a way of relating to and getting at Cheshbon Hanefesh - the accounting of the soul that our tradition teaches us to do in preparation for, as well as during, the High Holidays. In this session we will look at three episodes from Torah as guides and catalysts for a discussion on how we can hold ourselves accountable for missing the mark with respect to who we are and strive to be, righting our wrongs, and our noticing ourselves for the year to come.
with Rabbi Jonathan Rudnick


September 1: “GUILT!!! WHY DO WE ACCEPT IT? WHY DO WE IMPOSE IT? HOW CAN WE HANDLE IT?”
“Jewish Guilt” is an overblown, mischaracterized cultural phenomenon. “True” Jewish Guilt dates back to the Torah, but there is an inherent commitment to forgiveness. There is good guilt and bad guilt, and it can keep us on the right path of behavior or convince us that we are bad people not worthy of being forgiven. It is up to us to decide if we have no choice but to feel guilty, if we have to use it to get other people to do what we want, and if we can turn it from a liability into an asset.
with Rabbi Stephen Karol
