The Days of Awe (Book Group)


This series is designed to deepen your experience of the entire High Holiday experience. We will be reading Alan Lew’s “This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared” together. The book will guide us through the 2-month journey from Tisha B’av through Sukkot. Each participant should obtain the book and read the assigned chapters before each session. The sessions will be discussion-based. Class size will be limited so that each person will have a chance to reflect during our time together.

There are no fees involved, but participants are encouraged to make a donation to the Koleinu Beit Midrash fund if they are able to. Feel free to reach out to Rabbi Richman at with any questions.

Facilitated by Rabbi Beth Janus
Dates: July 27, August 20, September 10, 14, 21 & 29
