Shavuot : Journey of the Universe
Today we know what no previous generation knew: the history of the universe and of the unfolding of life on Earth. Through the astonishing combined achievements of natural scientists worldwide, we now have a detailed account of how galaxies and stars, planets and living organisms, human beings and human consciousness came to be. And yet . . . we thirst for answers to questions that have haunted humanity from the very beginning. What is our place in the 14-billion-year history of the universe? What roles do we play in Earth's history? How do we connect with the intricate web of life on Earth?
Come join us on the holiday of Shavuot to see the film Journey of the Universe and join Rabbi Brent and Professor Alison Spodek for a discussion of the the spiritual dimensions of natural history of our planet, followed by Shavuot Davvening led by Cantor Ellen Gersh.
