High Holidays Intensive Practice Period with Norman Fischer

Tuesdays: Aug. 7, 14, 21 + Thursday Sept. 13.

6:30 – 8:30pm

The Makor Or Annual High Holidays Intensive:The High Holidays mark the most intense period of the Jewish sacred year.  Beginning with the month of Elul, we spend time in preparation, prayer, meditation, reflection, and repentance (teshuvah, return) as we re-tune ourselves to our spiritual lives, pausing from our task-oriented activities to take stock of and rededicate ourselves.
The Intensive offers us a format for our practice.  It offers us guidance and community.  It consists of five meetings, daily practice, and reflection between meetings, weekly contact with a chevruta partner, and a private interview with our teacher, Norman Fischer.  The weekly meetings include meditation, instruction, and discussion.
