Who's in Your Circle? Exploring the Talmudic Stories of Honi Ha-maagal
Many children know the stories of Rabbi Honi the Circle Drawer, who brings rain to drought-stricken areas, who meets an old man planting a carob tree, and who falls asleep for 70 years. But his is much more than a folk tale. It is a profound analysis about the relationship between individuals and their communities. We'll explore the lessons these stories have for our own society.
Rabbi Tracee Rosen is rabbi of Beth Emeth Congregation, Sun City West.
"Judaism and Gratitude."
Did you know that the Hebrew word for Jew comes from the word for gratitude? As we enter a time of thanks-giving in our secular society, we'll explore the Jewish roots of gratitude. Through text study, experience of song, and personal reflection, we'll discover together how Judaism has understood gratitude through the ages and how it can help us cultivate thankfulness in our day to day lives.
