Pre-High Holiday Series with Rabbi Barry Cytron
Many, perhaps most of us will be yearning to be together for Yontif this year. How shall we think about that “reunion moment?” What themes from the prayerbook will speak out this Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? Which readings will prod us, and which must be rethought in this new age?
Talking points include our post-pandemic [hopefully] selves, and the High Holy Days.
Rabbi Barry Cytron graduated from Columbia University in New York, from which he also received an M.A., was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and received a Ph.D. from Iowa State University. With colleague Earl Schwartz of Hamline University, he has written two texts exploring Jewish ethical teachings: When Life is in the Balance and Who Renews Creation. He was a regular contributor to the Minneapolis Star Tribune for many years, and remains active in national interfaith activities and publications.
