The Theology of Leonard Cohen – Monday, August 9 at 8:00 pm
• Leonard Cohen’s songs allude to parts of the Bible, our liturgy, and history.
• What does he tell us about his relationship with God? Does it mirror our own?
• Unpacking Mahzor Metaphors – Tuesday, August 17th at 8:00 pm
• Our High Holiday prayer book depicts God in many ways.
• Which images speak to us? Can we find a way to relate to those that don’t?
