Elul, the month preceding the High Holy Days, invites study and quiet that reawakens the connection to our pure and holy lives. Through the Beth Tzedec Centre for Spiritual Well-Being, in partnership with Congregation Kol Emeth in Palo Alto and their Rabbi David Booth, we have created a three-week “whisper course” on the story of Hannah and its power to transform our lives through honesty, humility and prayer.
Google developed whisper courses as a way to teach particular topics at a pace that works in an organized, communal way. They include regular short emails, a chance to offer feedback and specific exercises to help you master new material.
For our course, each participant will receive three short emails during the week with exercises and study material. The exercises will require a few minutes each day and, with regular practice, will deepen our connection to our one life-point. We will also create a forum for feedback so that participants can share their experiences with others.
This innovative educational approach creates a personalized daily practice at your own schedule and pace. It offers doable exercises that can have a real impact on busy and overscheduled lives. We will share this course with members of Kol Emeth to give us a broader perspective and connect us to the larger Conservative world.
