This essay is an introduction to the twenty-four Morasha classes on the Jewish Calendar. The goal of the Morasha series on the Jewish Calendar is to explore the meaning and observance of Shabbat and the Jewish festivals – natural and propitious occasions for all Jews to connect to their heritage. Judaism does not look at time as a static linear progression that flows from one moment to the next without any connection to the past. Rather, time reflects a cyclical dimension, a medium through which we move, just as we move through space. Each Shabbat and Festival contains its own spiritual energy that offers us a unique opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.
