The Jewish Spring: The Journey from Purim to Pesach
Sponsor The Boston Synagogue
Type of Event Education

Join us for the third section of our Four Seasons of Judaism series...The Jewish Spring: The Journey from Purim to Pesach led by Rabbi Ben Lanckton, the Jewish Chaplain at Mass General and the Synagogue's Rabbi-in-Residence

On Purim (the week before this class starts), we read the Megillah, the scroll of Esther, telling the story from near the end of the Bible about the saving fo the Jews from Persia, without any explicit mention of G-d. On Pesach (the week after this class ends), we read the Haggadah, the story of Exodus from near the beginning of the Bible, which omits any mention of any human redeemer, including Moses. How do we move from no mention of G-d to no mention of humans, or, on a culinary level, from consuming plenty of leavened hamantaschen to ridding our homes of any leaved products? We will explore this journey through the Megillah, the Haggadah, and other rabbinic sources.

This series is open to all and will be a terrific interactive learning experience. If you are considering conversion, these classes along with additional components can lead to conversion.

Price: $25 Synagogue Members/$30 Non-Members. Couples, students & Young Professionals please call for pricing. Scholarships are available. THIS WILL BE HELD ON THREE MONDAYS: March 19, 26 & April 2nd from 4-7:00 PM at the Boston Synagogue.
