This week at JCSVV
Shalom from the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley. Erev Shabbat services begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, led by Joe Berger.
Saturday morning, Oct. 29, at 11 a.m., all are invited to Torah study, beginning with a short discussion of the portion of the week: Noah (Genesis 6:9-11:32), followed by study of the book of Joshua, narrating the story of how the Israelites entered the Promised Land. This study of the prophetic and historical books will continue all year. Potluck dairy/vegetarian luncheon follows the study session.
Sunday, Oct. 30, Religious School at 10 a.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 2, 8:30 a.m., egalitarian morning minyan; 10 a.m. a new series begins on The Hebrew Bible.
The class will be conducted by Rabbi Alicia Magal and Dr. Paul Friedman, based on videotaped lectures presented by Professor Amy-Jill Levine, of Vanderbilt University’s Divinity School, each followed by extended group discussion.
The class will take a multi-faceted approach, including historical, archaeological, literary and other perspectives on this endlessly fascinating text, with discussion on how the Bible appears against the larger background of the ancient Near East as revealed by research in archaeology, cross-cultural studies, and comparative religion. No charge for members of the JCSVV. $40 for non-members for this year’s monthly series through June 2012.
