How do we learn to make amends, and also invite greater accountability into the world around us? This year’s common read shines a 21st-century light on the wisdom of the 12th-century Jewish physician and scholar, Maimonides/Rambam. In this fall’s workshop, participants will explore what practices of “repentance and repair” looks like in interpersonal relationships. A further workshop will be offered in 2024 exploring repentance in communal spaces as well as in the larger community.
