The Challenge of Forgiveness with Larry Goldstein
Yom Kippur:  Our time to ask for and offer forgiveness. To whom do we owe it?  From whom do we need to get it?  Do they/we deserve it?  Join Larry Goldstein in discussing a Jewish approach to forgiveness. Click to join: The Challenge of Forgiveness with Larry Goldstein

Wrestling with Abraham (and God) with Bob Dollinger
The Binding of Isaac is one of the central and most confounding Torah readings of the High Holiday season.  Join Bob Dollinger in exploring the intellectual and spiritual challenges raised by this portion.  What are we meant to learn from this story?   What does it say about our relationship with God?  How important is faith to our modern practice of Judaism?
