While the western world presents religion as being a private matter of belief, Yom Kippur pushes in the direction of the public collective as a site of relationship with God. What are the dimensions of this different way of thinking?
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)
- The Universal and the Particular (Sukkot)
This series is part of Ideas for Today, curated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas of this moment.
