7:30 PM: Rabbi Shelly Lewis - Descent To Ascent: The Possibility of Renewal From Egypt/Mount Sinai to the Pandemic
Rabbi Nachman of Breslav knew intimately times of steep personal descent due to illness, failure, or great loss. Yet he taught eloquently of new, unimaginable growth that becomes possible only in a dark period of descent, the precursor to a new and higher ascent. We will study his remarkable teaching and ask how his insight can help us in this hour of our crisis.

7:30 PM: Why do we read Ruth on Shavuot? with Zoe Jick
We will learn the story of Ruth and Naomi, on one foot, and investigate the hidden connections between this narrative and the holiday of Shavuot.  This class is the culminating session in the OFJCC/BINA six part series, "The Writings." You do not need to have participated in "The Writings" to attend.
