Our sages intended our High Holiday season to be a time of true transformation. It can be a time when we shed the spiritual baggage weighing us down so that we can embrace greater sh’lemut (wholeness) individually and as a community. But such transformation requires preparation – which is why our sages dedicated the month of Elul (the time preceding Rosh Hashanah) as a time of spiritual preparation. In this four-session class, Rabbi Ruit will guide us through texts that have traditionally been studied during Elul (Psalm 27 and The Palm Tree of Devorah) in order to access greater meaning during this high holiday season.

Rabbi Gavi Ruit’s approach to the rabbinate is both scholarly and deeply spiritual.  Prior to rabbinical school she was a developmental specialist working with troubled children and teens, and after ordination in 2015 she did post-ordination graduate work in Medieval and Modern Jewish Theology.  Both experiences have added nuance and texture to her teaching, and one of her greatest joys as a rabbi is teaching sometimes neglected aspects of Jewish tradition (Mussar, Kabbalah, Talmud, liturgy) through a modern progressive lens   Her recent book (2019) – The Story of Dinah: Rape and Rape Myth in Jewish Tradition – looks at the intersection of Jewish tradition and rape culture and has been very well received.

Temple Beth-El Providence is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
