Explore a poetic approach and interpretation to two essays of A. D. Gordon, a 19th-century and early 20th-century labor Zionist and secular spiritual leader, about our relationship to the land and nature. Rabbi Katy Allen, who translated the essays, will lead the two sessions, which will include a discussion of the essays and of our spiritual connection to the land.
Free to members of Temple Ohabei Shalom. $15/session for non-members, payment of cash or check made out to Ma’yan Tikvah, will be collected at the door.
