Rothman B’nai Mitzvah
Sep 24 all-day
T’Shuvah Program: “Through the Looking Glass: The World Reflected in our Ourselves”
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

All religious traditions have approaches to and methods of self-reflection. Looking at ourself is not only a key element in the task of renewal and repentance, but also helps determine how we see others. Using religious texts from a variety of faiths, literary sources and the power of art we will explore what it means to see the world mirrored in our own soul.

The Hebrew word for atonement is “t’shuvah” which means to “turn towards”. During this sacred season and period of reflection, join Rabbi Michael Bernstein of Congregation Gesher L’Torah and Rabbi Pamela Gottfried, Dean of Jewish Studies at the Weber School (and artist), for a conversation about our inner journey, taking stock and considering our spiritual direction with some interfaith text study. After some time for process, introspection and reflection, turn your hand towards the art component of the program and release your creativity!

Free and open to the whole community … everyone is welcome to join the conversation!

Reservations are requested, so please save your seat early!
