Join us in-person at Temple Micah! Rabbi Andrea Weiss of Hebrew Union College will join us as our guest speaker on the topic: “The Story of the Scouts: Holding on to Hope in the Face of Fear.” The biblical story of the scouts sent to survey the Promised Land offers a lesson about hope and encouragement in the face of fear and regret. We’ll move from the book of Numbers to two contemporary teachings about hope: one from “American Values, Religious Voices” and the other from “Israeli Values, Religious Voices.”
No advance registration is required to attend in-person.
