Divorce Through a Jewish Lens

Divorce affects upwards of 43% of Jewish families. Whether it touches us directly or indirectly – as individuals, friends, family, community members, clergy, and organizations – divorce impacts all of us. At Divorce Through A Jewish Lens, we use Jewish text and tradition to provide commentary and insight into divorce, using it as a powerful tool to understand challenges unique to Jewish families.
Lynn Kaplan began her research into Divorce Through A Jewish Lens in 2014 after seeing the connection of the work she was doing in the Jewish community and her work with Jewish families as a Certified Divorce Doula. With training as Family Mediator, Arbitrator and Parenting Coordinator, Lynn has a private practice as a Certified Divorce Doula and Divorce Coach. Her work in this field, in tandem with her vast work and volunteer experience in the worldwide Jewish community, is what brought Lynn to found Divorce Through A Jewish Lens. Lynn brings to the table an open, warm, direct style, and a nonjudgmental approach.
Sponsored by the Solel Mitzvah Committee. Light refreshments will be served.

The Dead Sea Scrolls: A Double Intrigue
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls was shrouded in mystery, which later turned into a scandal in the scholarly world. And the interpretation of the scrolls continues to evoke controversy! We shall learn about these intrigues as we delve into the mysteries of the texts, to let them speak for themselves.
In particular:

  • Why did it take so long for the Dead Sea Scroll team to release the documents?
  • Who wrote the scrolls, and what was their expression of Judaism?
  • Who is Enoch and what’s he doing in the scrolls?
Then we’ll evaluate what they have to teach us about our own period of Jewish history. Session 1 of 5.
