|Elul Shiur Programme with Rav Reuven Join Rabbi Silverman on Zoom for this 4 part study session, starting Sunday, 8th August, 7pm. |
Sunday’s session (August 8 Rosh Chodesh Elul) is entitled “A Taste of Talmud Shiur”. Led by Rav Reuven Silverman from the Tractate Rosh Hashanah. What does the mitzvah of blowing and hearing the shofar involve for us? What more is there to it than simply making or hearing the sound?
Our study will also deal with members of the community involved and how we relate as Reform Jews to ancient perspectives on personal status: gender differences, women and men, the disabled, community leadership and slavery. Some very hot subjects for today – and we’ll reflect for an hour on where we stand in relation to how the Talmud treats them.
Contact Mandy for details of how to join in the discussion.
A message from Rabbi Robyn, Alison and Claire about the High Holy Days
High Holy Days are right around the corner and we are busy thinking about the best way of holding High Holy Day services and activities for our JR Families. Given the changes to COVID restrictions and the ongoing need to be cautious, we are considering several different options. We need your help in knowing what is going to be the most suitable way to host activities this year. If you are a member, you will have been sent a link to a survey. Please fill out our survey to let us know your preferences, share your ideas, and volunteer to help with planning and carrying out these events.
