Ahavah, Hesed, Rahamim: The Language of Love in Torah
This will be an exploration of God’s love for us, with parallels of human love for God and each other. Using the word Torah in its broadest sense, as Jewish texts reveal through the ages, we will look at expressions of love and the feelings and experiences that are part of love.

All Eitz Or events are fragrance free, so please refrain from wearing any fragrance. We look forward to welcoming you to Eitz Or.
