כִּֽי־עִמְּךָ֥ הַסְּלִיחָ֑ה לְ֝מַ֗עַן תִּוָּרֵֽא׃
Yours is the power to forgive so that You will be held in awe (Psalms 130:4)
On Rosh Hodesh Elul, Saturday morning August 22, please join CBY for a conversation about forgiveness.
The discussion will be faciliated by Maeera Shreiber
As we enter this season of reflection, we will consider what does it mean to forgive those who have injured us as individuals and those who have injured us as a community.
We will start by learning some Jewish texts focusing on forgiveness and then turn to a case study focusing on R’ Shlomo Carlbach – a complex figure who gifted the Jewish world with much beloved music, but also hurt several women by way of sexual misconduct.
This discussion will give us an opportunity to reflect on a difficult ethical situation with which other Jewish communities have wrestled, and give us insight into the complex demands of forgiveness.
