The How's and Why's of High Holidays
"Mastering the Mahzor with Rabbi Caplan"
Saturday mornings after services over lunch, September 24. What is the prayer Avinu Malkeynu all about? Why are there so many prayers that ask for forgiveness in the Mahzor (High Holiday Prayer Book)? Why do we sound the Shofar so many times on Rosh Hashanah? Come and learn what the High Holiday prayers are really about! We will examine who wrote them, when and why. We will go in depth with regard to what they mean and how can we personally connect with them when 5777 arrives. No Hebrew proficiency is required. Come to one or come to all! Please RSVP to the office so we can prepare materials for participants.
Sundays, September 25 from 12:30-1:15 PM with Rabbi Caplan.
Why do we blow the shofar on Rosh Hashanah? Where does the Shofar come from? How do we sound the Shofar? Come and learn the answers to these questions and more before Rosh Hashanah. And of course, bring your own Shofar and we will teach you how to sound the notes too! You can come to one or both of the sessions. Cost is Free. Please RSVP to the synagogue office if you plan to attend!
