torah study with rabbi jonathan crane

We're pleased to offer opportunities for Torah Study with Rabbi Jonathan Crane during the High Holidays. The sessions will be held in Zimmerman Hall. 

Rosh Hashanah Day 1 (11:30 am) - Renewing Worthiness

Perhaps on a bad day the thought may have arisen that life is not worth living. What does it mean to say that a life is not a life? Though some people used this concept to bring about great harm, this session considers Judaic ways to think afresh about making our lives worthy of living.

Rosh Hashanah Day 2 (10:30 am) - Renewing Trust

Essential to any significant relationship is trust. What is trust? What does it mean to trust?  Who or what is trustworthy? Are you?

Yom Kippur (2 pm) - renewing patience

Life overflows with different kinds of suffering.  When confronted by suffering, we are encouraged to be resilient and patient.  Patience, however, is no singular thing.  What’s your model?
