Spring Holiday Arc for Rookies
(and we are all rookies)
Taught by: Rabbi SAM Luckey
The Jewish holiday cycle has two great arcs, one in the summer and fall around the High Holy Days, and one the in winter and spring, culminating in Shavuot, the all-night celebration of receiving the Torah. Starting with the tree sap rising of Tu b’Shvat, the ‘birthday of the trees,’ moving to Purim, Passover, the Counting of the Omer, and Shavuot, we will learn about these festive days – their lore and customs and their connections to each other. Each week will include time for personal reflection and we will count the Omer together.
This class is especially geared towards people who are newer to this sacred cycle, including folks in or interested in the conversion and adult b’mitzvah programs, and any folks who want to dig deeper into the sacred rhythms of the season.
This online class will run on Sunday evenings from 7:15 to 8:30 pm Pacific Time for 8 sessions, starting on the end of the 2nd day of Passover and ending during Shavuot.
This is not a drop in class, you can register for the whole series or for one class if you want to try it out before committing.
