OUR CURRENT CLASSES                                                         

Explore Elul...In Space!- 7:30 - 9:30pm
Taught by Rabbi Jessica Yarkin
Wynn Meeting Room

Join Rabbi Yarkin to screen and discuss three classic episodes of the British Sci Fi comedy Red Dwarf. Several episodes deal with motifs that mirror the internal work we are encouraged to do during our High Holy Days: the balancing of the ego, the difficulties of being judged as guilty or worthy, and an exploration of what true Justice looks like. This 3-session series begins 8/8/2018. All learners aged 17 and up are welcome to join! These classes are free to attend, but please click here to register.
