Deadline Monday, May 11, 2015
Our program continues on April 13 and 14, featuring new course about Chasidic texts on Prayer. On Monday Evening, April 13, at 7:30, Orly Dabush Nitzan concludes our current mini-course, “The Poetry of Modern Israel,” focusing on Hebrew poetry written in Israel since the early 1950’s.
On Tuesday night, April 14, we conclude our year long series about Jewish texts with the three week course, “G-d wants the Heart, and the Heart wants G-d: Chasidic Reflections on Kavannah/spiritual intention.” Teacher: Rabbi Jeremy Kalmonofsky
The Chasidic sages were among Judaism’s deepest teachers about the soul and the inner life. We will join to study the words of the Rabbi Israeli Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Chasidism and his disciples (modern-day Ukraine, late 18th and early 19th centuries). We will discuss their insights about how to direct the heart in worship, and how to cultivate our spiritual faculties.
Rabbi Jeremy Kalmonofsky has served as Rabbi of Congregation Ansche Chesed in Manhattan since 2001. He contributed essays to “The Observant Life,” “Jewish Theology in our Time,” and “Jewish Mysticsim and the Spiritual Life.” He is also a member of the Conservative Movement’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards and the editorial board of the journal “Conservative Judaism.”
PLEASE NOTE A CHANGE IN SCHEDULE: Sessions two and three of this course will be on Tuesday, April 28 and Tuesday, May 5. Each evening begins with dinner at 6:45, followed by the class from 7:30-9:00 P.M. The cost for the class is $36.
