6pm Friday Night  –  Learning and Shabbat Dinner **  “The Unique Theology of Kabbalat Shabbat”.  In this d’var tefillah, we will explore the unique theology of the section of Psalms which became Kabbalat Shabbat.

9am Shabbat Morning – “The Jewish Holiday Cycle in Parshat Emor”.   Among the major passages in this week’s parsha is the list of holidays. How does its structure inform its meaning?

Following Services, Shabbat Lunch & Learn  –  “Truth And The Rejected Opinion In The Talmud: The Theological Significance Of Talmudic Debate”.  During these increasingly divisive times, what can Judaism teach us about the role of dispute and disagreement in pursuing truth and creating community? How might Talmudic legal theory on the one hand, and Talmudic storytelling on the other help us frame how we approach serious disagreement in our lives?
