Hearing the Shema 

An Introduction to and Exploration of the Shema as the
Opening to 1,000 Prayers
This class will engage with the text of the Shema - just 6 words - with the intention of deepening, enriching, and expanding our connection with this central Jewish prayer.
No prior knowledge of Hebrew or level of experience with Jewish prayers is required.
Meet fellow congregants as we experience and explore the many faces of this powerful prayer which is the first prayer we teach to our youngest students and the most frequently repeated prayer in our TBC services.
