Adar Rosh Chodesh Program Sponsored by TI Women’s Network
Join Rabbah Arlene Berger and the women of TI from 10:30 – 11:30 am on Sunday, February 26, for a lively Rosh Chodesh discussion on “What Does It Mean to Be Commanded?”
There are many examples of being commanded in our Jewish texts:
- The Jewish people were commanded not to kill or steal — and we obey.
- The midwives were commanded to kill all the first born infant boys — but they refused.
- Shabbat, kashrut, and nidah are commandments we clearly consider but seem to practice in different ways.
- Queen Esther acted out of a sense of commandedness — did she do the right thing?
In our discussion we’ll explore various definitions/examples of being “commanded” and see how the concept relates to our daily lives, our own personal sense of commandedness, and the ever-changing times we live in.
This program is sponsored by TI’s Women’s Network (Sisterhood). Light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP to Ellen Eisner (firstname.lastname@example.org or call her, her number is in the directory) by Wednesday, Feb. 22.
