Lamdeinu’s engaging High Holidays learning sessions are held both online and in person. Rachel Friedman is the dean of Lamdeinu.

Rabbis Gedalyah Berger and Daniel Fridman will lead thought-provoking discussions in the morning on Thursdays, September 21 and 28. The sessions, open to all, will be conducted in person in the beit midrash at Teaneck’s Congregation Beth Aaron.

At 11 a.m. on September 21, Rabbi Berger will explore “Shehecheyanu in Tishrei: Unique Applications of a Familiar Berakhah,” proving an opportunity to uncover new meaning in a well-known blessing. Rabbi Fridman will follow with “Parashah & Haftarah Pointers for the High Holidays Season” at 12:30 p.m.

On September 28, the discussion is on “Sukkot: The Clouds of Divine Glory.”

Rabbi Hayyim Angel will talk about “Kohelet: Meaning and Methodology” on September 18, at 1 p.m.

Tuesdays will feature the return of Rabbi Yitzchak Etshalom at a new Lamdeinu time — September 19 and 26, at 4 p.m. On September 19, he will talk about the Yom Kippur pre-Mincha reading, “Exploring the Book of Yonah.” On September 26, his talk will be “Exploring Hag HaSukkot and Shalosh Regalim.”

On Wednesdays, September 20 and 27, at 10:15 a.m., Rabbi Yitzchak Twersky will analyze “The Torah Readings of Yom Kippur and Sukkot.”
