AN ADDITIONAL ZOOM CLASS. . .
Where does great Jewish wisdom come from? Well...one of the sources is
Pirke Avot, actually a section of Talmud (Mishna, technically). Pirke Avot, usually translated as 'Ethics of the Fathers' is a collection of short teachings by some of the early Rabbinic sages with a lot of wisdom packed in. There is a tradition that between Passover and Shavuot, each week we study a new chapter (six weeks between the two holidays, six chapters). This past Shabbat during Torah Talk, we looked at chapter 4...and hardly got past the first few lines it was so jam-packed ('Who is wise? The one who learns from everyone? Who is rich? The one who is happy with his/her lot...)
We invite all congregants to join us this Tuesday, May 19th for chapter five and the following Tuesday, May 26th for chapter 6, both from 1-2 PM. A fast moving and uplifting class, great for those who are 'newbies' to Jewish texts. No charge for CK members.
RSVP to Renee by Sunday.
