In our late Corona world, with geopolitical and domestic upheaval, many of us are experiencing a time of transition and new beginnings. How can rabbinic treatments of Rosh Hashanah contribute to our understanding of who we want to be during such change?
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:
- Self-Incrimination and Confession: What We Know and Say about Ourselves (Yom Kippur)
- 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.
