Mystical tradition has it that the 40 days between the start of the month of Elul and the end of Yom Kippur constitute an auspicious period during which to engage in teshuva (forgiveness and return). This soul-accounting and forgiveness process can be one of the most intense spiritual practices in Jewish tradition—and it is most rewarding.
Dive into a textual and experiential exploration of teshuva during the month of Elul with Rabbis Getzel Davis and David Curiel as we prepare for the Days of Awe and teshuva. The core texts we will be studying together will be those of Rebbe Nachman of Breslev, Rav Kook and the stories of those in this group.
No prior knowledge of Hebrew language or Jewish mysticism is necessary; simply bring an open mind and heart.
This course will be taught by Rabbi Getzel Davis and Rabbi David Curiel. It meets weekly on Thursdays, 8-9:30 p.m., from Aug. 20 to Sept. 24.+ More... - Less...
