Upcoming Classes

  • July 14, 2020  1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
    Book Club led by Rabbi Ellen Triebwasser

    Adult Learning:  Our new book is "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks. It is a novel that blends the long history of the Sarajevo Haggadah with modern day politics and the emotions of people  involved with preserving it. 

    For our first meeting we will talk about the real Sarajevo Haggadah and discuss only the first section of the book. We will not meet on June 23 and will continue meeting weekly on June 30.

    For more information click here.

    In 1996, Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, which has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna, a caustic loner with a passion for her work, discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding—an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair—she begins to unlock the book’s mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book’s journey from its salvation back to its creation. 

  • July 15, 2020  1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
    JEWISH SPIRITUAL PRACTICE AT THE WJC: Spiritual Tools from Our Tradition with Rabbi Pauline Tamari Ph.D.

    Adult Learning: “Spiritual Sage-ing in a time of Brokenness”
    With Rabbi Pauline Tamari and Rabbi Ellen Triebwasser

    With age come perspective and wisdom. Let us recognize our status as elders and tap into the inner wisdom we may not realize we possess to find ways to understand both ourselves and this unforeseen world we are living in. We will use the spiritual tools of our tradition to offer our wisdom to those we love in an ethical will and discover ways to uncover and spread truth and light.
