This Shabbat morning: Why Reconstructionism -- Reclaiming the Power of Myth

December 20, 2014 - 11:30am

Why Reconstructionism: Ten Steps Towards a Meaning-Based Judaism

Session 4: Reclaiming the Power of Myth (December 20)

Reconstructionist Judaism represents a path by which we search for meaning and enhance our lives. In ten monthly sessions, Rabbi Marc Margolius will lead us through the core principles of Reconstructionist Judaism, exploring how it can help us find greater meaning in our daily lives, individually and collectively.  Each session will be held in the West End Synagogue sanctuary as part of our Shabbat service, which begin at 10 a.m. The study session will run from approximately 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.  Please join us after services for our kiddush luncheon.
