Make it Meaningful - Yom Kippur
For most of us Yom Kippur is a laborious and heavy day, but can you imagine it as exciting and uplifting? This lesson will transform Yom Kippur for you, and help you appreciate it as a profound and joyous opportunity.

We will explore the theme of Yom Kippur as a day on which G-d yearns to forgive us, examine its many traditions, and learn how each fits the overall theme. We will guide you through the many stages and prayers of the day, exploring their spiritual undertones, while offering step by step guidance coupled with uplifting and inspiring insight. You will learn to appreciate Yom Kippur as a spiritual ladder that we climb through the day until night falls and victory prevails.

Make it Meaningful - Sukkot
One of the most exciting holidays in the year is around the corner. We sit in the Sukkah, shake the Lulav, sing and dance, while enjoying seven days of wonderful parties and delicious meals. But what is Sukkos all about, why are we so joyful, and what are we celebrating?

Join us for a comprehensive lesson on the multiple themes of this fascinating holiday and the deep spiritual meanings that underline them. We will explore the historical and spiritual background of the Sukkos rituals and examine its unique prayers and traditions. We will walk away with a realization that its many varied traditions revolve around a unique and unified theme that can change the way we relate to each other and the way that we appreciate G-d.

Make it Meaningful - Simchat Torah
Every year on Simchas Torah, we sing, dance and experience pervasive joy. But why is completing the Torah reading such a joyful occasion, don’t we do it every year? And if it is so special, why do we start over again as soon as we complete it? Why is there only one day in Israel and two days elsewhere? And does this extra day make Simchas Torah in the Diaspora more special or less?

Join us for a fascinating journey through this joyous, but enigmatic holiday. We will not only guide you through its many steps, we will show you how to do it yourself. We will discover the what, how, when, where, and whys of a day that is as deep as it is, refreshing, as it is mystifying.
