Ritual Leadership Training ~ Full-Day Intensive

October 29 @ 9:45 am - 4:00 pm

Be part of our ritual leadership revolution!

In order to be the inclusive and engaged community we aim to be, we want to train as many DJC members as possible to be leaders in Jewish ritual.  Since our exciting and unique decision last May, ritual leadership roles are open to everyone, Jews and non-Jews, who participate in our training program, growing knowledge, understanding, personal meaning, commitment, and skills.

Topics for Full-Day Intensive:

What is Torah? Introduction to the arc of the Torah narrative. What is revelation? A close look at the Sinai narrative and different ways of interpreting/relating to the receiving of Torah (i.e. What is commentary and interpretation?) Asher kidshanu (You have commanded us). What is mitzvah/commandment?  What are different ways of relating to commandment/mitzvah rooted in different beliefs or orientations?
What is bracha (blessing)? – words of blessing, prayer. What are different ways of relating to God, God-language, and words of prayer?

For more information, contact Rabbi Miriam.

This program is also ideal for anyone interested gaining a greater understanding about Torah, blessings, and rituals.

DJC Members:  free
Non-DJC Members:  $250/person (includes one full day session + one follow up session)
