Souvenirs


In case you haven’t checked my calendar link, I thought I’d let you know about a series of six classes I hope to give in May and June. Each class will be 60-90 minutes long and they will be given in private homes on Mondays from 1.30 pm to around 3 pm, from May 6 to June 17 (we’re skipping May 20, Victoria Day). The cost for the series is $150.

Each class will address one of the Six Remembrances/Zechirot: six Torah passages that require us to remember something. (In some siddurs this list of six appears at the end of the morning prayers, along with “Ani Ma’amin”, a brief credo based on Maimonides’ Thirteen Principles, and the Ten Commandments.)

The six remembrances are:
— the exodus from Egypt
— the experience at Sinai
— the attack by Amalek
— God’s anger at the generation of the desert
— God’s punishment of Miriam on the road out of Egypt
— the sabbath

No prior level of Jewish education or observance is required; classes are conducted in English and materials are provided in translation. If you’re interested, then email me to let me know.
