Passover Online Adult Education: "And You Shall Ask": The Power of Questioning
At Passover, “The Four Questions” are a central part of our seders, but they are not the only questions found in the Haggadah. Why are questions so important in the telling of the Exodus story? One of the most powerful forms of speech is asking questions, which is the focus of our next Adult Education series. Let’s spend some time asking questions about the questions. Passover is all about transmitting our history from generation to generation. Asking questions, both prescribed and spontaneous, connects each of us to that process of history in deeper ways.
Being at home does not mean we stop learning as a community. In our next Adult Education series, we are offering classes through Zoom Video Conference that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home and still be a part of the CGOH family. As long as we are all at home, let’s get ready for Passover.
“And You Shall Ask”—A Deep Dive: The course begins with a small slice of the Haggadah (4 questions), framing it with Bible and Talmud and essays from different Rabbis and prompting new ways of questioning and listening. Classes are Wednesdays at noon and 7:30 pm (same class, choose your time), March 25 and April 1
