Every Monday we will hold a guided class, with havruta and discussion.  In addition to classes, we will hold an open beit midrash, complete with texts and guiding questions. Come with your own hevruta or let us match you with one.  Learn in the Beit Midrash together with full-time fellows at Yeshivat Hadar.  Celebrate our progress throughout the year, culminating with a siyyum on Seder Moed at Shavuot.

High Holidays Beit Midrash Series

Date: 

September 8, 2009 - 7:30pm

Kehilat Hadar is excited to connect our High Holiday themed Beit Midrash to our Seder Moed Community-Wide Learning Project. Together we will be studying themes from Masekhet Yoma (Yom Kippur). In the last session, we will learn new and classic melodies for Rosh Hashanah.
 
This week's class will be taught by Jon Kelsen, and is entitled "Immersing in God."  Masechet Yoma concludes with some provocative halakhic and aggadic insights into rabbinic notions of repentance and forgiveness. In this session, we will unpack these texts, and ask: What is teshuva, who does it, and why?

"Everyone is obligated in Re'iya* – except for…" (Hagigah 1:1)
Taught by Tanya Zion Waldoks

Our learning will focus on the obligation to see and be seen, and we'll explore the spiritual meaning of "seeing."  In addition, we'll ask how a mitzvah can be a requirement for "everyone, except for…" – and we'll discuss issues of inclusion and exclusion in our communities.
