The Sh'ma and Its Blessings Part I: Creation
It’s a classic problem: if God is the creator of all — omniscient, omnipotent and benevolent — how can there be evil in the world? Over the centuries, sages and scholars have tried to untangle this knot. Join Rabbi Samantha Natov and Student Cantor Joe Flaxman on Zoom for a deep dive into “Yotzer,” the prayer that explores God and creation. Investigate its meaning and history, where it falls in the morning service and how different musical settings affect the way we understand it. A great intro to Shabbat liturgy and enriching for more experienced worshippers!
