Finding the Words: A Personal Exploration into the Book of Psalms with Rabbi Mona Strick
How do these ancient prayer-poems give voice to the most human experiences of joy, grief, despair and hope? How do they give us permission to explore our complicated feelings about God? Using a variety of translations, commentary, musical settings and liturgy, we will dive into select Psalms to deepen our understanding of the text. Together we will consider what continues to make this unique book of the Bible so compelling.
Fee: $216. Generous financial scholarships available.
Rabbi Mona Strick was ordained at Hebrew College. She has taught Open Circle courses on Teshuva and Prayer, JLF classes for BU Hillel and a weekly interfaith class delving into various Biblical texts.
