Unlocking the Mahzor: A Look at Key High Holiday Prayers

Organization: Hadar Institute

Please note: This course is available through our brand new Elul Cycle, starting August 20. Learn more and sign up at www.projectzug.org/elul

Join us as we prepare for the High Holidays by exploring the textual roots of this special liturgy.  We will delve into the biblical and rabbinic sources of key High Holiday prayers, with an eye toward unlocking meaning and connection to the larger themes of the holidays.  Whether you are new to High Holiday liturgy and are looking for a way in or you are looking to deepen your experience with all too familiar prayers, you will come away from these sessions with a more nuanced understanding of our liturgy and new ways of standing to pray.
