Hadar Chicago Yom Iyyun: Between Praise and Protest
Sunday, May 7 at 12:30 - 5:00 PM Central
Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob (8825 E Prairie Rd, Skokie, IL 60076)
Throughout the millennia, Jewish prayer has been a conduit between humans and God. It contains and expresses the passions, emotions, ideas, and spiritual yearnings of people longing for a connection with the divine. Exploring prayer is a unique way to understand our ancestors' relationship with God and to probe our tradition for guidance in our own spiritual journeys. At Hadar’s Chicago Yom Iyyun, we will uncover language for gratitude and anger, praise and protest, and the multitude of ways to imagine who God is.

Mishkan Chicago and Hadar Chicago are thrilled to host Joey Weisenberg for a one-night-only concert in Chicago, open to the general public.
