Pre-Rosh Hashana Outdoor Learning TONIGHT
Everyone is invited tonight, Monday, August 30th, to learn with food and friends to prepare for Rosh Hashana. Come at 7:45 PM (immediately after Maariv) for coffee, tea, desserts, and assorted snacks and pick one of two classes:

"Stagnation and Spontaneity: How Chana's Tefilah Can Invigorate our Rosh Hashana Davening" with Ora Weinbach

or

"If God Decrees on Rosh Hashanah That You'll Be Poor, Am I Powerless to Make You Rich? A New Twist on an Age-Old Question" with Rabbi Alex Maged.

The learning and food will all take place outside in the tent. Come, see friends, and learn something to make your Rosh Hashana more meaningful. We encourage people to come in person, but if you prefer there will be a zoom option.

For Ora Weinbach's class, join here.
