2. Vassar Temple Lifelong Learning - February 2018

All My Life's Circle:  The Jewish life Cycle
The Jewish tradition provides a wealth of ways to make life-cycle moments meaningful. Whether we are welcoming a baby into the covenant,  celebrating with a couple as they build a home together, or caring for the mourner following the death of a loved one, the Jewish community comes together to support individuals during life's big transitions. Together we will explore traditional rituals and their meanings, as well as modern interpretations and innovations. All in the community are welcome to attend and no previous knowledge is required.  The course will be taught by Rabbi Leah Berkowitz of Vassar Temple (www.vassartemple.org), in partnership with the Poughkeepsie Public Library District.  
Classes will be held at the Boardman Road library branch at 7 p.m. on the following three Tuesdays:
  • Feb. 13   New Beginnings: From Birth to B'nai Mitzvah
  • Feb. 20   Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Jewish Wedding
  • Feb. 27   To Be Remembered is to Live Forever: Death and Mourning
For further information about the course, please contact Rabbi Berkowitz  rabbi@vassartemple.org  845-454-2570.
