Rabbi Mark Biller will lead a two-part Zoom series, “Judaism and our Emotions,” that will explore ancient, medieval, and modern Jewish texts that focus on Judaism’s view of emotions. The free series will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursdays, March 3 and 10.
The program is coordinated by the West Morris section of the National Council of Jewish Women through its “Our Jewish World” program, co-chaired by Ilene Dorf Manahan and Melanie Levitan, both of Morristown.
“These texts will teach us how to know when to be quiet and when to muster the courage to speak; how to have compassion for those with whom we disagree, how to deal with our patience and our impatience, and much more,” Rabbi Biller said.
“It’s all there in our Jewish heritage, even though it’s just never really been a big part of Hebrew school curriculum or synagogue sermon material.”
Rabbi Biller was the spiritual leader of synagogues in his native Canada, as well as in Alabama, New Jersey, and New York.
