Repentance:  Retroactive Repair

Repentance, prayer and charity are the 3 things that can change our judgment on the High Holidays.   We are told that repentance erases our sins.  But how exactly does it operate?  How can the effects of our actions, both in the physical and spiritual world, simply disappear?

 

Sept. 13     5:45 - 6:45

Rabbi Yinon Kalazan

The Hidden Message of the Shofar

Many of us are aware that the shofar is supposed to act as a spiritual wake-up call and that the ram's horn is meant to remind us of the sacrifice our forefather, Avraham was willing to make for G-d.  But there are also hidden messages conveyed by the shofar and the four different sounds made with it which will be explored in this class.

 

 

Sept.. 27    7:00 - 8:00

Mrs. Ivy Kalazan

The Viduy - Confessing One's Sins

One of the most well-known and solemn prayers of the High Holidays, the viduy is a confession of all the different types of sins  (many of which we know we haven't committed), and a request for forgiveness.  This class will analyze, line by line, the different kinds of sins mentioned so we can understand the concept of atonement and what it is we are asking to be forgiven for.

Rabbi Eliyahu Bergstein

A New and Different Examination of  Talmudic Personalities

Much of the Talmud consists of debates between individuals that result in a clarification of Torah Law.  The words 'Talmudic personalities" usually mean that we are about to focus on the scholarship of these illustrious people, and to learn from what they said. This series, however, will focus on  Talmudic personalities known mostly for their piety, and learn who they were, and why they are celebrated even more for what they did than for what they said.

higher spiritual levels.
