Rest in the Seventh: Shabbat, Shmitta, and the Sabbatical Cycles of Redemption and Freedom (6 sessions)
This Hebrew year 5782 is the Shmita year, a sabbatical year of rest and release. How might we personally and collectively prepare for a year of rest, reset, and radical rejuvenation? Starting with the study of Shabbat, each week we’ll ground ourselves in text and conversation around our weekly, holiday and yearly cycles and explore what “release” might truly mean. We will delve into Biblical, rabbinic, and post-modern wisdom and draw on our own experiences as we vision what is possible.
Co-facilitated by Rabbi Getzel Davis and Leora Mallach
