2:00pmThe Story of Us with Rabbi Daniel BogardWho were the first people to think of themselves as Jews, as “us”? What did they believe about the world, and where they had come from? What were their sacred stories? Join Rabbi Daniel for an hour-long trip through the first 1000 years of Jewish history. And if you love it, “The Story of Us” will be happening every Tuesday at 5:30, in person and on Zoom, throughout the fall.
2:00pmHoly Crafting with Rabbi Karen BogardJoin Rabbi Karen for a meaningful and personal crafting experience on Yom Kippur afternoon. We will be creating self-love jars using tissue paper and decoupage, and filling these jars with mementos and personal thoughts to help us throughout the next year.
3:00pmGrief Support with Jamie Sentnor“Death ends a life, not a relationship” -From Tuesdays with Morrie
How do we continue a relationship with people in our life who have died? Jamie Sentnor will lead an interactive discussion about ways to memorialize our loved ones. We will share strategies that can be useful as we grieve the absence of someone significant in our lives
3:00pmThe Legacy of Words Within the Tapestry of Text with Rabbi Dale SchreiberRabbi and scholar Arthur Green writes about the Jewish artistry for words in his introduction to the Zohar. Based on an understanding of the Second Commandment’s prohibition against graven images, Jewish creativity was channeled into words. While others were creating stained glass windows, sculptures, icons, and illuminated manuscripts, Judaism was creating a legacy of words. We will trace the odyssey of the word TZEDEK [צדק] from its appearance in Genesis as the name of a King, ruler over Wholeness through two illuminating and inspiring Hasidic texts.

Parking will be off-site in nearby lots with shuttle service to and from CRC. There will be a limited number of handicapped parking spaces available in the CRC lot for those unable to ride the shuttle bus.
