Exploring Emunah in the Sukkah

The Hebrew word "emunah" is often translated as faith or belief, but the translation fails to capture the word's dynamics. The Zohar, a Jewish mystical text, describes the Sukkah as the "shadow of emunah." Sitting in the CJS sukkah together, we will learn selected biblical, mystical, and contemporary Jewish sources, reflecting upon what we know about emunah and its shadows. There might be some singing.
