Learning the Torah of Resilience from the Talmud to the Mystics with JMCW

Learning the Torah of Resilience from the Talmud to the Mystics with JMCW - Led by Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt

Tuesdays at 7:30pm in the Biran Beit Midrash
Series #1: 12/6, 12/13, 12/20* (3rd Class is virtual)
Series #2: 3/14, 3/21, 3/28

Everyday lately seems like another wave of bad news from the war in Ukraine, to the climate emergency, to the state of politics in the United States and abroad.  How do we face troubling times with an open heart and a resilient spirit?  Our rabbis faced a world that was in tumult and continued to innovate, re-charge, find their footing and carry on.  How do we learn from their experiences?

In this 2 part (3 week session) we will explore stories from the Talmud, the Zohar and the teachings of the mystics on building a resilient spirit.  All texts will be provided in both Hebrew and English.  We will study the contexts in which these texts were written, how the rabbis and mystics approached their struggles and how we might integrate resilience into our own lives. 


The class will meet in-person and virtually for the 3rd session. Please register below.
