Study Session

Values and Voices: Preparing Ourselves for the Days of Awe

9:00pm • Pavilion
On S’lichot, as we prepare ourselves for a new year, our tradition summons us to take stock of our lives. What can we do to create light together? Where does our happiness come from? How can we bring blessing to the world through speech? As we prepare for the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe), Rabbi Andrea Weiss will explore with us relevant writings from “American Values, Religious Voices: 100 Days. 100 Letters,” a campaign that sent letters from scholars of religion to our elected officials in Washington for the first 100 days of the Trump administration. The political will give way to the personal as we read passages of these letters related to the themes of the High Holy Days, prompting questions that can guide us toward our own cheshbon hanefesh (accounting of our souls).
Rabbi Andrea L. Weiss, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Bible at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York and Campaign Coordinator for “American Values Religious Voices: 100 Days. 100 Letters.” She was Associate Editor of The Torah: A Women’s Commentary (URJ Press, 2008) and author of Figurative Language in Biblical Prose Narrative: Metaphor in the Book of Samuel (Brill, 2006).
