Rosh Hashanah: Why This Day?

Why did Hashem specifically choose the day Man was created for judgment of the universe? Understanding exactly what  I am being judged for, and how the "verdict" may be carried out will help explain the connection between Man's creation and the need for judgment.

Women in Tanach

In this series, we'll explore the unique qualities of some famous women in Tanach, and what they  teach us  as women and as part of the Jewish Nation.  The classes will focus on lesser known aspects of famous women such as Sarah and Rivka, as well as women who are important role models for us even though we know less about them.  The semester will start with Sarah Imeinu and how we can understand her laughter when told about Yitzchok,  and her sending away Hagar and Yishmael, and Rivka Imeinu and how she laid the groundwork for  a nation characterized as a "rose among the thorns"
