Rabbi Sylvin Wolf, a resident of The Coves and former Rabbi of the Naples Jewish Congregation, leads this course focused on journeys.
Extraordinary Passages explores various journeys from biblical times to the present, including our own individual journey.
Generations: A Family’s Journeys: A family journey of three generations, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob led to the formation of a nation of people called the Children of Israel. We’ll look at how the paths of the patriarchs diverged, how their lives connected with the Land of Israel, and explore the meanings of their multi-generational saga.
Jonah: A Story of Many Journeys: What does it mean to set out on a journey without knowing the destination? Meet Abram (Abraham) who is commanded to “go forth!” and does just that. We will explore what this passage of the Bible may reveal about journeys and progress.
Journey into the Unknown What does it mean to set out on a journey without knowing the destination? Meet Abram (Abraham) who is commanded to “go forth!” and does just that. We will explore what this passage of the Bible may reveal about journeys and progress.
The Journey of Our Names • Names carry promises and challenges. Our own names embody aspirations – hopes that our families have for us and that we have for ourselves. We will look at how some biblical characters transform when their names change, and trace the journeys of some modern examples.
The Making of a Wandering People: How can a nation or a people exist in the diaspora? We will explore how the experience of exile has shaped the Jewish people, from biblical times to the present day.
The Stops Along the Way: When we go on a journey, our horizons are broadened and we gain new insights into the world. We use journeys as a metaphor for life.
