Wednesday, October 12, 2022 17 Tishrei 5783

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMAdas Israel Sukkah

With Rabbi Alan Lew z”l as our teacher, we will discuss sections of his classic book, This Is Real And You Are Completely Unprepared: The Days of Awe as a Journey of Transformation. This volume follows the spiritual calendar from Tisha B’Av to Sukkot. This is our third year reading together a chapter from this classic and wise meditation on the High Holidays. Our discussion this year will focus on Sukkot and opening ourselves up to living with joy, even in vulnerable times. Rabbi Lew continues to be one of the leading voices in Jewish spiritual practice and his insights can guide us on the meaning of the High Holiday journey, especially during personal and communal challenges. The complete book is inspiring and can be easily purchased online; note there is an updated paperback edition. If you would prefer a shorter read, here is a link to some relevant portions for our discussion, including the Epilogue: The Stars Are Shining On My Head: Sukkot.
