    Price: $ 0.00

    In the High Holy Day prayers, we sing ‘Everyone Believes’ –  a poem by Yannai from the Byzantine Era. In this class, we’ll be exploring the nature of faith, we’ll be asking whether God has faith in us, and we’ll be recasting the holiday of Rosh HaShanah in terms of a renewal of faith: Human and Divine.

    Part of the Stanley Rudoff Memorial High Holy Day Lecture Series.

    Why does God command us to kill animals when we’ve done something wrong? What does this have to do with atonement, Yom Kippur, and the Binding of Isaac? Are you ready to transform yourself into a living sacrifice, and is that what we do on Yom Kippur?

Support Drisha

At Drisha, people of all ages and backgrounds study Torah in an inclusive Beit Midrash, marked by deeply rigorous and honest learning, a commitment to the Jewish people, and a passion for connecting our study of texts with our individual and communal lives.

I learned what it means to bring your whole self to Torah study. This meant challenging myself and others to formulate an idea honestly and with clarity, grappling with an idea within a previously held worldview, bringing every discipline and insight to the table as a potential tool to understanding, and sharing a joy and enthusiasm with the community of students of Torah that surrounded me.
