Special guests Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Dr Louis Newman will join us to lead a series of events travelling around our larger Jewish community, beginning Friday evening at Nahalat Shalom.
Friday, September 23, 7:00 pm. Selichot with Dr. Louis Newman. Nahalat Shalom Sanctuary. Teshuvah: It's Easier Than You Think, It's Harder Than You Imagine. In this text study, we'll consider what makes teshuvah both extremely challenging and fundamentally simple. Our tradition helps us see how appreciating both of these things is essential to doing the work of teshuvah.
