High Holidays 5771 & Kehilat Hadar’s Annual Campaign

At Kehilat Hadar, we believe that meaningful davening (prayer) experiences and learning opportunities should be available to all, and we do not charge membership fees or sell tickets for High Holiday services. However, Kehilat Hadar relies on your donation to maintain high quality davening and programming in our community.  Kehilat Hadar has an annual budget of approximately $165,000.  This includes the following costs:

Talmudic Stories as Cultural Criticism: How Talmud Can Inform our Public/Private Policy Discussions

Date: 

July 27, 2010 - 7:30pm

Location: 

Yeshivat Hadar, 190 Amsterdam Ave., at 69th St.

Join us on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., for a community dinner followed by a Beit Midrash series, taught by Mishael Zion, at 7:30 p.m.

This week's class is entitled: Searching for an Authentic Path in Life. 

Our lives are full of challenging and sometimes maddening dichotomies.  Do we focus inward on our own spiritual lives, or do we devote our energies to social action?  Which takes precedence, family or work?  The body or the mind?  These are all issues that we – and Talmudic society - struggled with. In particular, they told stories in order to work through these issues.  This summer, our mission for the community Beit Midrash is to reclaim Talmudic stories as a rich tool for exploring these questions.  Reading these stories through critical, scholarly, personal and contemporary lenses, we will challenge ourselves and our texts to together build a better community, one where the Talmud regains its role as a centerpiece of our culture.
