Our Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning provides members and friends the opportunity for growth and renewal on Yom Kippur afternoon, Wednesday, October 9. 

Reconstructionism Judaism: A Niggun. A Blessing. Questions and Speculation with Ed Towbin

We will discuss issues that may relate to Ed’s talk on Rosh Hashanah and expand on the idea that all scripture and gods are the inventions of human beings, and therefore require a reconstructed view of miracles, commandments, etc especially when held out as ethical and moral guidelines. After a quick mention of basic Recon ideas we will touch on the difficulties and rewards that come from rejecting the Chosen People concept.

Facilitator: Ed Towbin has been a member of B'nai Havurah and a Reconstructionist for 52 years. He joined the Reconstructionist movement because of what he learned about Mordecai Kaplan's writing. Ed's passion is to put his writings into practice. His special interest has been in reconstructing g-d language to represent divinity as process and put more fully into practice the concept of rejecting Chosenness.

There is no cost for the classes for members or friends of B’nai. Those age 12 and older are welcome to participate. Please register below.
