STUDY SESSION: RABBI LAWRENCE A. HOFFMAN

Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman
“Who Shall Live and Who Shall Die”: Really?

What do we make of this High Holy Day prayer, a staple with a message so at odds with what we believe? Its history reads like a detective novel, and when the mystery is solved, a profound message emerges. Come for the mystery; come for the message; come to appreciate the High Holy Days as you never have before.

Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, PhD, is Professor Emeritus of Liturgy, Worship and Ritual at Hebrew Union College in New York; cofounder of Synagogue 2000, a project to transform synagogues into moral and spiritual centers for the 21st century; author/editor of 50 books; recipient of two National Jewish Book Awards; and a long-time admirer of and consultant to Temple Emanu-El.

THIS EVENT WILL BE IN PERSON & LIVESTREAMED.
