Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute’s summer course, “Biblical Reflections: Finding Yourself in the Book of Genesis,” will be taught in Vail, Colorado by Rabbi Dovid Mintz.-

his six-session course examines classic stories from Genesis in a modern light, focusing on their eternal relevance to everyday life.

“These stories are in the Bible because they deal with the most powerful of human motives and feelings: the quests for love, purpose, identity, and redemption,” says Rabbi Eli Silberstein, the course author. “Biblical Reflections takes a unique and personal perspective and shows how these stories are the stories of your life, reflecting your joy and your pain, your struggles and your accomplishments.”

Participants will identify with Biblical characters grappling with feelings and dilemmas that lie at the heart of the human experience. Lessons will examine a range of commentaries, and students will amass concrete tools and gain insights into how to respond more thoughtfully and effectively to such challenges.

Rabbi Dovid Mintz, of The Chabad Jewish Center in Vail, will be teaching this course at the center located in the Vail Run Building on six consecutive Tuesdays, beginning July 14 at 10 a.m.

The course will also be given in Edwards, at the Inn at Riverwalk, on six consecutive Tuesday evenings, beginning July 14 at 7:15 p.m.
