  • Exploring the Bible

    60 Highland St: Living Room (Parlor)
    Wednesday, October 24, 2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

    with Dr. Sanford Goldfless
    Meets weekly through May

    In this class we get familiar with the Jewish Bible (the Tanach or Torah, Prophets, and Writings) by reading it in English and discussing large parts of it together. We often look at the biblical text from a historical perspective, and we always pay attention to the literary features of the text that are essential for conveying its meaning. We also enjoy conversation about the course of Jewish history and culture through the ages.

    The class is very low key and interactive and is open to all Dorshei Tzedek members and their friends.

    Cost: $15 per session (fee can be reduced to whatever you feel comfortable with)

  • Shabbat and Sustainability: The Radical Practice of Rest

    60 Highland St: Living Room (Parlor)
    Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

    Shabbat and Sustainability: The Radical Practice of Rest
    With Rabbi Toba Spitzer and guest teacher Laya Steinberg
    Thursday evenings, October 11 through November 8, 7:30-9:00pm

    The practice of Shabbat, one of the fundamental pillars of traditional Judaism, can be experienced as oppressively restrictive or radically liberating. What is the meaning of Shabbat, and how do we make it relevant to our lives? How can Shabbat be understood not only as a personal, spiritual experience, but also as a social-political-environmental practice? In this class we will study traditional and modern texts on Shabbat, and explore how we might develop or deepen our own Shabbat practice, as individuals and as a community.

    Join the CDT welcoming committee for an Open House Welcome Session at 9:30am followed by Got Shabbat: ARTS MATTER!

    Join us for Arts Matter-themed “Got Shabbat?”, an opportunity for the whole community to come together and have fun, learn together and find new ways to celebrate Shabbat. Beginning together with songs and blessings, adults and kids are then invited to choose from a  series of arts-based activities, until we gather again to read a little Torah and close the service together. Come find out if you’ve “Got Shabbat”! A kiddush lunch will follow.
