Join us for Lesson Six of the Rosh Chodesh Society Course: Pause & Effect!
At first glance, the rules of Shabbat seem to defy logic. Why is it permitted to lug a heavy table, but forbidden to tie a knot, flick a switch, or jot a quick thank-you note? How did the simple instruction, “Do not work,” turn into a complex list of thirty-nine categories (and hundreds of subcategories) of prohibited labor? Catch a glimpse of the timeless depth of meaning behind the Shabbat regulations, whose elegance and dynamism allow us to seamlessly apply them to new and emerging technologies and circumstances.
Delicious light refreshments will be served.
