Shir Ami's Lifelong Learning "Really Makes Me Wonder"

‘Wonder rather than doubt is the root of knowledge… Wonder is a state of mind
in which we do not look at reality through the latticework of our
memorized knowledge, in which nothing is taken for granted. Spiritually we cannot live by
merely reiterating borrowed or inherited knowledge. Inquire of your soul what does it know,
what does it take for granted. It will tell you only no-thing is
taken for granted; each thing is a surprise; being is unbelievable.’

– Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Man is Not Alone

Rabbi Heschel’s words are the perfect introduction to our Lifelong Learning Program for 5782.  Through a multitude of avenues and topics we will learn more, get to know each other better and explore Jewish tradition, values, laws and customs in new and exciting ways! We will not merely ‘reiterate’ or ‘borrow’ knowledge that has been given to us. We will not take the wisdom that has been passed down to us for granted.  

Our goal is to engage, inspire, surprise, expand minds and experience our peoples’ amazing history and tradition in a new light and through new lenses. From music to movies to text study to book groups to learning from some of the most accomplished scholars of our time, there is truly something for everyone! (And, if there’s something you don’t see that interests you, please be in touch with Rabbi Eric).  

It’s going to be a great year and we look forward to learning with, and from, you!
