There is a real transition that happens when we say these prayers with intention and make them a part of our day. This will be the first session of a class series designed to unload the word observant and offer a taste of the beauty and
simplicity of living a Jewish lifestyle.

COVID-19 has brought our whole society to an unwilling stop. But the
Torah tells us that society should willingly stop every seven years
and that all of us should stop every seven days. There are other kinds
of stopping are described in our stories — hesitation, mourning,
completion, fear, victory, etc. What can we learn from them about how
to live in our current reality? And what can our COVID reality teach
us about how a society can stop for the sake of holiness?
