Wisdom & Reflections for a Very Different New Year
August – September, 2020
The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the Washington Board of Rabbis are pleased to present Wisdom & Reflections for a Very Different New Year—29 days of learning guided by the diversity, warmth, and wisdom of our local rabbinic community.
Last year, we featured 29 rabbis throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia, to share their wisdom and reflections during the Hebrew month of Elul—the 29 days leading up to Rosh Hashanah.
Celebrate this meaningful transition to a New Year with a process of spiritual introspection, personal growth, and by deepening our connections with one another.
L’shanah Tovah! May we be inscribed in the Book of Life!
