Lesson 2: Glow of Peace
The prototypical Shabbat scene, as depicted in art and literature, is
of a family gathered around the elegantly set Friday night table, with
the Shabbat candles burning. These images portray a sense of peace,
love, and serenity. But it was not only in the best of circumstances
that Jews dedicated themselves to kindling the Shabbat flames.
In the Kovno Ghetto during the Holocaust, Jewish women asked
a local rabbi whether they could use electric lights to fulfill this
mitzvah because they could not obtain candles or oil. Analyzing this
question and the rabbi's answer allows us to explore the contours,
function, and meaning of this powerful mitzvah. We will learn
the practical laws and customs as well as the rich symbolism and
meaning that is present in this ritual act that ushers in the Shabbat.

Great Debates in Jewish History: Dec 6

Lesson Five
Chasidism - Divine Transcendence vs Divine Immanence
Wednesday, December 6 @ 8:00 pm

In the 1700s, the Ba'al Shem Tov introduced a focus on joy, prayer, and the simple Jew's relationship with G‑d. But this endeavor was met with resistance. What motivated Chasidism's opponents? What issues lay at the heart of the debate? And what historic tensions set the stage for this upheaval that divided families and communities?
