Torah Study of Isaiah: Chapter 58 with our rabbinic intern Donna Cephas




TORAH STUDY OF ISAIAH: CHAPTER 58  [particularly verses 3-8]

Facilitated by our rabbinic intern Donna Cephas 


In preparing for this Yom Kippur,  I have been reflecting  on some  words from the unataneh tokef  prayer and what might be a connection between the tzom and tshuvah.  What is tschuvah calling us to do internally and perhaps as a community and how might  this connect with fasting?


We will study Isaiah, Chapter 58 to glean some answers to this two-part question. Perhaps Isaiah may help us understand a notion of fasting as a means towards change in society.
