Unetaneh Tokef : High Holy Days Music and Liturgy in the Age of Pandemic
Wednesday, September 2 from 12:00 to 1:30 PM

Most years, the themes and liturgy of the High Holy Days are challenging. This year, more than most, we will feel the cry of the Unetaneh Tokef ,as we pray to be inscribed and sealed for another year. Join Rabbi Berry and Cantor Shafritz for a deep dive into the central prayers of the High Holidays. Together we will explore the music, the texture, and the difficult theology embedded in our liturgy. Learning together, we will seek to discover how these challenging words can come to comfort us, heal us, and move us with renewed intention into the year ahead.

Mikdash Me’at: Building a Holy Space at Home
Wednesday, September 9 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM

For the first time in recent memory, Jews around the world will not gather in person to observe the High Holy Days. Instead, the magic of technology will bring the High Holidays to us at home. However, even at home, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur should not be like any other day (can I wear pajamas to Yom Kippur services?). Join Rabbi Berry as we explore ways we can bring the sacred into our individual homes. In doing so, we hope to build a sanctuary for our minds and bodies that will deepen our unique High Holy Day experience.

Blessing Hard Times: What Mishnah Berachot Teaches about Patience, Endurance, and Gratitude

Tuesdays, August 4, 11, and 18  from 12:00 to 1:15 PM via Zoom

In this interactive course, we will look into the Talmud to study selections from Mishnah Berachot, which may be familiar to those who have been doing —or hearing about—Daf Yomi (daily Talmud study). We'll look at a handful of mishnayot (in English) through the lens of hardship and discuss how the wisdom they contain might also apply to our present situation—both personal and communal.

Naomi Gurt Lind has been a member of Temple Shalom for nearly 20 years. Spurred by the belief that there is no higher calling than taking care of one another, last September she started rabbinical school at Hebrew College in pursuit of a long-held dream. She sings with the Zamir Chorale of Boston and is active in LimmudBoston, serving as Chair of the Board of Directors. In her free time, she hangs out with her husband and their two genius boys, solves crossword puzzles (in pencil), and bakes a legendary challah.
