Sermon during services | 12:30 pm post-Kiddush teaching
In honor of Passover, we are excited to host Rabbi Josh Cahan, a fantastic teacher who is completing a new Haggadah. Over Shabbat he will speak Friday night during services; he will share a sermon Saturday morning titled “The Missing Story of the Haggadah”; he will lead a study session after services called “So What Story Does the Haggadah Want to Tell?”; and after Shabbat Mincha he will discuss his new Haggadah and book design.
Rabbi Joshua Cahan of New York compiled and edited the Yedid Nefesh bencher and is introducing the new Yedid Nefesh Haggadah this Spring. He spent 13 years teaching high school Talmud and Tefilah in New York and 8 summers running the Beit Midrash program at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin (where he met R. Freedman). He holds Rabbinic Ordination and a Ph.D. in Talmud from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
