Pop Torah: Putting the AWEsome into the Days of AWE

 The High Holy Days, and the month preceding them, offer us a time of deep and solemn introspection; but sometimes, you just need to kick back and laugh. Is it possible to do both while preparing for the holiest time in the year? Join us to find out! Through the wisdom of modern sages like Adam Sandler, Will Farrell, Meryl Streep and Albert Brooks, we will explore the deeper themes of the Days of Awe and what makes them so awe-some. Through an entertaining variety of film and television clips, we will explore how we can turn our everyday encounter with popular culture into an opportunity to encounter Torah and Jewish values, and how we can uncover the sacred in the seemingly mundane.   We will also engage in our own reflection of the past year and visioning for the year to come.
