The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community hosts Hevreh of Southern Berkshire's Rabbi Jodie Gordon, who will help prepare us for the upcoming Days of Awe by sharing some of the insights in Rabbi Alan Lew's This is Real and You Are Totally Unprepared.

As the month of Elul beckons us to attention and intention, Rabbi Gordon will lead us on a journey of reflection and preparation as we begin to climb toward the new year.  Using text study and guided meditation, we'll begin the process of cheshbon ha'nefesh, a spiritual accounting, as we begin this annual journey of transformation.

Rabbi Jodie Gordon is rabbi and director of education at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire.  She lives in Great Barrington with her husband, Joshua Bloom (VP on Federation executive board), and two daughters.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
