This Month's Topic: Seeking Light In the Darkness

The well-known saying, “don’t curse the darkness, light a candle” speaks to us this year at Chanukah in ways we may not previously have imagined. In this session, we will explore the meaning, mystery and symbolism of light in Jewish thought and tradition. From the creation story, to Kabbalah, Talmud and the Zohar, light is a recurring theme in Jewish texts. "Light is the overarching, central, definitive metaphor for Jewish understanding of all of reality," writes Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf. All are welcome as we rekindle our spirits in these dark days. 

The Philosophy Minyan is a monthly lunchtime series on Zoom. All are welcome to join in an interactive and thought-provoking exploration of topics at the intersection of philosophy, Jewish thought and contemporary issues. No advance reading is required and participants will receive online access to all the class materials following each session.

Be sure to check the Beth Am calendar for future class descriptions and any schedule changes, as well as to register for individual sessions.
