This course will provide an opportunity to wrestle with some of the traditional prayers of confession which might, at times, challenge us, while also – in the true spirit of Jewish Renewal - make space for our own creative reformulations of the practices of forgiveness and repentance handed down through the generations. We will also strive to build a sacred container within the group to ground the many experiences of the holiday cycle of Tishrei – taking time together to marinate in, and integrate, our experiences through services and other offerings in the wider community during this heady month of celebration and returning to Source.

Participants can sign up for individual classes or the whole series. If you sign up for the whole series - say for Wednesday evenings - and one week you want to come to the other class - i.e. Thursday at noon - that's fine. Participants would just need to let Rabbi Diane know. Rabbi Diane will be teaching the same content each week on Wednesday eve/Thursday day, so it wouldn't make sense for anyone to come twice in a given week or to sign up for both options.

Rabbi Diane Tiferet Lakein moved to Boulder in 2019 from Europe, where she was the Rabbi of Chawurah Gescher (Freiburg, Germany) and Migwan (Basel, Switzerland). She is currently a freelance rabbi in Europe and the United States – with an emphasis on education and spiritual direction – and can be found online at Rabbi Diane holds a Masters of Jewish Education from Hebrew College and received rabbinic ordination from ALEPH, the Alliance for Jewish Renewal. Earlier in her life she was a cultural anthropologist – and has lived extended periods of her life abroad, in Sweden, Thailand, China and Germany.

While the classes build on one another, drop-ins are welcome.

No Hebrew is required. Texts will be provided both in Hebrew and in English translations.
