  • Rosh Chodesh Lesson 3: Creation Revisited
    Wednesday, Feb 1st 7:30p to 9:00p
    Creation Revisited We are all creators, made in the image of G-d, the ultimate Creator. But is the difference between our ability to create and G-d’s merely a quantitative one? This lesson unearths foundational principles of Jewish thought regarding G-d’s creation of the world, unearthing ageless wisdom for reframing our approach to life’s obstacles, dealing with anxiety and doubt, and seeing the value in every moment.
