Making the Days of Awe Truly Awesome

Event Contact

Since its publication in 2003, Rabbi Alan Lew’s “This Is Real And You Are Completely Unprepared” has become a beloved companion to countless Jews seeking to deepen their experience of the High Holy Days. Join Rabbi-Kohenet SB Gershuny for a seven-session exploration of the book, which charts the spiritual work of teshuvah (repentance/repair/return) across the Jewish calendar, from Tisha B’Av through Sukkot.

In addition to reading and discussing Rabbi Lew’s ideas, participants will be guided in their use of contemplative and creative practices to prepare themselves for days that are truly high, holy and transformational.
