2nd Day Rosh Hashanah Learning Experiences

Wednesday, September 8 | 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Wednesday, September 8 – Stampfer Chapel & Online Viewing
10:30am: Creating an Integrated Life: Jewish Texts on Wellness
Rabbi David Kosak
In this session, Rav D will explore some of the themes he discussed in his Rosh Hashanah Day One sermon. Together we will look at Jewish texts that can guide us in generating more complete lives for ourselves.
11:30am: Im Ein Ani Li Mi Li? If I’m not for myself, who am I?
Mel Berwin
During the Days of Awe, we reflect on how to get closer to our authentic selves. In this short verse from Pirkei Avot, we are challenged to consider how we identify ourselves and stand up for ourselves in a complicated world, and how we support others in being their best unique selves as well. Join me for a dive into text and conversation on these themes.
12:30pm: Gender in Sacred Jewish Literature
Amy Katz
One of the themes of the high holidays is introspection. In order for us to work towards being the best versions of ourselves, we must understand who we are. For many, this includes an understanding or perhaps a reckoning with the idea of gender identity. Many think that gender fluidity is a new concept, but this session will teach that in our sacred texts the concept of gender has never been simple or binary. We’ll consider texts starting with the first human, and the implications these ancient texts have on our understanding of gender today.
