While the western world presents religion as being a private matter of belief, Yom Kippur pushes in the direction of the public collective as a site of relationship with God. What are the dimensions of this different way of thinking?   

In her three-part series, Talmud from the Balcony: Examining Big Ideas of the High Holiday Season, Elana Stein Hain offers new insights on Jewish texts, traditions, and practices to help you live a more meaningful Jewish life. Each class consists of a weekly lecture, text study, and discussion.

Other sessions in this series:

  • Transitions, New Beginnings, and New Regrets (Rosh Hashana): September 22
  • The Universal and the Particular (Sukkot): October 6

This series is part of Ideas for Todaycurated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas of this moment.
