Elul Interactive Lunch & Learn Workshop
September 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Preparing for the High Holidays – Elul
“Stories We Tell Ourselves”
Lunch & Learn Workshop Discussions
Instructor: Rabbi Elizabeth Bahar
Maharal of Prague said: “All the month of Elul, before eating and sleeping, a person should look into his soul and search his deeds, that he may make confession.”
Please join Rabbi Bahar for two interactive workshop discussions and begin the work of self reflection. The workshops will meditate on the poem by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning:
“Earth‘s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.”
Workshop participants will contemplate a deep and long-forgotten truth – our collective memory and stories are preserved in our sacred text to help us reach our highest potential. They are, in the words of Abraham Joshua Heschel: “An occasion when the heart surprises the mind.
There is no cost to participate but we do ask that you please RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org or (904) 733-7078) to help facilitate materials planning.
