Here is the learning for the 5783 High Holidays:
The Journey Toward Repentance and Forgiveness
with Rabbi Eliezer Diamond
All of us want to repent, but we don’t necessarily have a game plan. The nature of forgiveness is also not clear to many of us. Drawing upon the teachings of Maimonides, Rav Kook, and Twelve Step literature, we will chart a course toward achieving both of these goals.
Bridging Dust and Divinity in the Days of Awe:
Unpacking the Unetaneh Tokef Prayer
with Rabbi Mychal Springer
We will explore this prayer that stands at the heart of the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe), with its stark juxtapositions of who shall live and who shall die, its haunting evocation of a celestial ledger, which is also a Book of Life. This prayer gives voice to human hopes and fears, inviting us to wrestle with our mortality, potentially helping us to align with the divine.
