Kabbalah and the High Holidays: A mystical and introspective look at the Jewish New Year

The month of Tishrei is the "richest" month in the Jewish calendar. It includes the most awesome days - Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as well as the happiest days - Sukkot and Simchat Torah.

Every Jew participates, in one way or another, in celebrating the High Holidays, which take place at the beginning of the Jewish year. These holidays give us a sense of renewal and serve to inspire us for the entire year to come.

Each holiday is not only a time of remembrance of a certain occasion in history, but also a recurrence of the original event. It is a time of reawakening of the special relationship between G‑d and the Jewish people, and between G‑d and the world.

Join us for a five session lunch and learn as we explore what the Kabbalah has to say about the Jewish New Year. The course will consist of 5 independent lessons, each in preparation for an upcoming holiday. see syllabus below

"I found these classes to be different than most that I’ve attended in the past. They are dynamic, personal and meaningful. This has been a wonderful learning experience."
-- Michael D. Felder, MD Pediatrician, Los Angeles, CA

All in all, I now have a completely new understanding of my religion.  There are so many things that I could have gone my whole life not knowing that I know now, and I’m very thankful that I took this class.  It just made me even more interested in Judaism, and I have so many questions and would love to continue learning more.  … really opened up my mind to so many things I would have never even thought I’d have wanted it opened up to.  And I’m definitely now much more proud of my religion than I ever was before.
