Tuesday Night Talmud — Berakhot Beyond Motzi: Snakes, Kings, and Philosophy of Prayer
Led by Rabbi Lindemann and Rabbi Katz

The Second Volume of Masekhet Berakhot contains both Halakhah and Aggadah. Both provide insight into Judaism’s philosophy of prayer. In Jewish tradition, there seems to be a blessing for everything, but is that really so? Are there prayers that should not be offered? Are there spiritual prerequisites for prayer? What makes a prayer or blessing effective? Does the Torah require prayer? Are only fixed prayers acceptable? What about spontaneous prayer? Beyond Motzi, what do we bless…and why?

Aging Gracefully with Gilah Lewis Sietz

‘Gray hair is a crown of Glory; It is attained by the way of righteousness’ Proverbs 16:31

Such is the way we age. First the hair, then the eyesight, teeth, then what??? Aging is inevitable; along with taxes. HOW we age is a gift we can give to our children, family, friends and those around us. What kind of legacy can we leave as we gray and squint? Judaism gives us so many beautiful, practical and intelligent ways to age with grace. Join Gilah Lewis Sietz as we discover this amazing world of aging together as we learn a little, cry a little and laugh a lot!!
