Do you ever wonder how the weekly Torah portion might actually relate to living in 2013? Join Rabbi Tsafi Lev as he skillfully leads this in-depth Torah discussion searching for messages of modern relevance and importance that lay just under the surface understanding of our holy work. All learners are welcomed – no prior Torah knowledge required just bring your curiosity and an open mind.
In this special series our Religious School Director, Rabbi Adam Schaffer, will lead one-hour discussions to help parents and grandparents to be prepared to have a meaningful conversation with their children about some of the most important Jewish topics.
In this session we will explore the meaning and history of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day), Yom HaZikaron, and Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Additionally we will explore how these three holidays provide a metaphor for transitions in our own lives. We all have moments in which we move from wiping away tears into the celebration of Jewish life.
