Tuesday, May 3, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET

Can praying other people’s words help build and sustain resilience? Using particular familiar examples from our daily and Shabbat prayer, we’ll explore the unique ways in which a regular prayer practice grounded in traditional liturgy can help strengthen us and give us honest hope in challenging and distressing times.

With Rabbi Jan Uhrbach, acting dean of The Rabbinical School and H. L. Miller Cantorial School and founding director of the Block / Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts of JTS

This session is the first in a series of four lectures on The Liturgy of Resilience. 

Individuals can sign up at a cost of $25 for the series, or for free with a code from a sponsoring congregation. 


From October through May this year, JTS is partnering with other Conservative Movement seminaries and institutions to offer eight lecture series featuring outstanding scholars and teachers from across the movement. Synagogues are invited to become ScholarStream co-sponsors so that their members may enjoy all of the lectures at no charge.
