Join Jconnect in preparing for the High Holidays by reading This Is Real and You are Completely Unprepared by Rabbi Alan Lew. We'll come together for a discussion of the book on Yom Kippur afternoon between services.
A classic book about the Jewish calendar, This Is Real and You are Completely Unprepared outlines an idea of the Days of Awe (the period preceding Rosh Hashanah up to Yom Kippur) as one continuous emotional arc, giving us tools for experiencing the holidays this period encompasses as a single spiritual journey rather than disconnected individual days. Beginning with Tisha B'Av, the book walks chronologically through the High Holidays - the preparatory month of Elul, Slichot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot - giving readers tools to engage in the deep spiritual work of this period.
We are offering $8 to subsidize purchase of the book. Proof of purchase must be provided. The reimbursement form is included in the registration form below. If you cannot make the discussion date, you are still welcome to participate.
