Beit Midrash: "Angry People, Angry God"

When is anger productive and when is it destructive? Biblical and rabbinic literature is full of anger, both human and divine. We’ll study a variety of texts (in translation) dealing with anger to find models that help us channel our anger in constructive directions.

Beit Midrash for adults will take place each Shabbat morning from 9:30-10:00am in the Magil Chapel.  Please feel free to enjoy coffee and cocoa on the Religious School landing beginning at 9 AM.
January 6 through February 24
