Sher Sweet will give the D'var Torah at the traditional Shabbat service on November 23rd to honor the memory and life of her brother Larry who died two years ago. The Torah Portion is Chayei Sarah.
After the service, Sher will provide the Oneg and do some teaching on archaeological evidence from Marije Gimbutas of a Great Goddess centuries before God the Father emerges and what the implications of that are for us as Jews. Though our tradition has expunged most references to a femimine God, there are still some traces of that in our Torah. Come and learn and discuss!
