Feelings,  Living a Jewish Life Class

Semester 2 Begins

Hello! Here I am, once again, popping up from the blue after many many months away. Class is starting up again, so I feel like I’ll maybe have a little more motivation to share things.

Class tonight was lovely, and I’m really looking forward to learning with all these people. We did introductions (for 58ish people! and pets! And a baby!) and it was really neat to see what people are bringing to the class and why they’re here. We’re hoping to eventually be in person, but I have a feeling that’s still a long way out.

Anywho, I hope to be able to provide more updates here, probably a Tuesday or Wednesday activity.

I leave you with the Shehecheyanu from ReformJudaism. For new beginnings.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמַן הַזֶּה.TRANSLITERATION

Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam, shehecheyanu, v’kiy’manu, v’higiyanu laz’man hazeh.TRANSLATION

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of all, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and brought us to this season.
