3-Part Lecture Series for Hadar in DC
Thursdays, October 21, October 28, November 4
7:30 PM Eastern
Shabbat is so much more than the labor and travel that we may not do and the specific rituals that we must do. The beauty and power of Shabbat is often defined by what is in between the necessary and the forbidden, in the special effort that we choose to put in to make Shabbat special. These extra dimensions of Kavod Shabbat, honoring and investing in Shabbat, are grounded in and guided by tradition, but are also specifically tailorable to our own priorities, interests, abilities, and needs. Join us on three Thursday nights as we prepare to celebrate Shabbat in all of its richness and study texts and develop strategies to enhance our understanding and practice of Shabbat.
This series is presented thanks to the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington's support for "Hadar in Washington DC - Engaging Young Adults."
