This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Torah, cosmos and life are deeply linked in biblical, rabbinic, Jewish mystical and hasidic teachings. In the visions of our forebears, Torah shaped the world and there was Torah to be discovered and applied everywhere. Can it be so for us? How can we learn Torah from the natural world of our times? How can the Torah of our own lives be responsive to the state of our environment? And how can we learn wisdom to survive our times from the sources of our heritage?
Our program includes an introductory evening of learning on Thursday, a day of work on the farm with Adamah staff and fellows on Friday, and a Shabbat of study, song and celebration featuring teaching by Rabbi Arthur Green and interactive source-study guided by Rabbi Jonah Steinberg.
All texts will be provided with English translations and the study and teachings will be fully accessible to all.
