In rabbinic thought, Sukkot is often presented – based on Biblical understanding – as a holiday representing the potential for all of humanity. What does this mean, and how might it speak to us today?
In her three-part series, Talmud from the Balcony: Examining Big Ideas of the High Holiday Season, Elana Stein Hain offers new insights on Jewish texts, traditions, and practices to help you live a more meaningful Jewish life. Each class consists of a weekly lecture, text study, and discussion.
Other sessions in this series:
- Transitions, New Beginnings, and New Regrets (Rosh Hashana): September 22
- Self-Incrimination and Confession: What We Know and Say about Ourselves (Yom Kippur) : September 29
This series is part of Ideas for Today, curated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas of this moment.
