Hadar DC High Holiday Lecture: The Days of Awe and Fear
Rabbi Avi Strausberg
Sunday, September 11, 2022, 10:30 AM
Ohr Kodesh Congregation, 8300 Meadowbrook Lane, Chevy Chase, MD

The days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are filled with fear. But as we cultivate this stance of trembling before God, fearful of God’s awesome power and what the year may bring, we are challenged to reflect on the place of fear in our lives. At the Hadar DC High Holiday Lecture, we'll turn to Torah to explore: how is cultivating a posture of fear in our lives helpful? How might it be harmful? What is the correct place of fear in our lives?

Hadar Boston High Holiday Lecture: Teshuvah and Transformation
Rabbi Shai Held
Monday, September 12, 2022
Congregation Kehilath Israel, 384 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA

For many of us, the High Holidays elicit ambivalence: The excitement we feel towards new possibilities for ourselves and the broader world is tempered by anxiety that our past attempts to change haven’t been successful. In this session, we will explore voices from the Jewish tradition that discuss why teshuvah is both so critically and urgently important but also so profoundly difficult. As we move through history, from Talmud, through the Musar movement, and onto contemporary Jewish thought, we will aim to bring to this new year a sense of resolve and deepened hope.

Hadar Chicago High Holiday Lecture: Creating The World Through Hesed
Rabbi Aviva Richman
Wednesday, August 31, 2022
North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, 1175 Sheridan Road, Highland Park, IL

Rosh HaShanah is meant to call to mind the majesty of divine creation. Yet, there are so many ways in which our world feels broken. What does it mean for the world to be created anew? Through the lens of rich sources woven together by the modern scholar R. Yitzhak Hutner in a formative essay about Hesed, we will aim to face God and face ourselves in the task that lies ahead.
