Emotional and spiritual connection is at the core of this workshop. Rabbi Elana Zaiman facilitates a writing process and an interactive experience that encourages self-reflection, and a deepening, healing and uplifting of our relationships. Through inspiring stories, sample letters, and writing tips, Elana serves as our companion on this journey of authentic connection with ourselves and with those we love.
In this workshop, we will:
Join Rabbi Dermer at Bagel Plaza for a nosh and exploration of the weekly Torah portion. We'll learn a range of commentaries on the Parasha, and discuss their meaning in our own lives. All experience levels and Hebrew abilities welcome. Bring a friend, take a bagel break, and add a little extra spirituality into the week.
In this class we will delve deeply into the Biblical text in an attempt to understand not just the text, but the context of the foundational stories, so that we can better appreciate the Bible as the primary record of our people's spiritual development. Each class will be an opportunity to explore and discover the hidden meanings waiting to be found in the text. No prior Bible study is necessary.
