Program 1: Birchot Hashachar Pezukei D’Zmirah

An opportunity to explore the beautiful morning blessings and psalms that are too often rushed through en route to the "important" prayers.  

Program 2: An Idiosyncratic Introduction to the MIshna

We will explore the second set of “Scripture” we seldom think about, the Mishna, in particular “What is the Mishna” and “How is it relevant to the moment?”

Program 3: The Sh’ma and Its Blessing

What you were always curious about, but did not dare ask.

Program 4: God May Turn and Relent: Jonah in the age of COVID

What can we learn today, in a time of preventative measures and flattening the curve, from the story of Jonah, a warning that comes in time?
