Welcome to Your Jewish Community

Limmud Atlanta + SE is a unique Jewish community: a place where the agenda is set by volunteers for volunteers – by you. LimmudFest is a place where you are encouraged to be creative, take risks: try new things. Everyone teaches and everyone learns. Everyone is responsible for the experience this weekend. You make it happen. That’s why there are no participants or volunteers at LimmudFest: instead, everyone is a volunticipant

Forgive Me, Forgive Me Not I

Forgiveness is a dynamic process that involves interplay of individuals whose intentions are as complicated as the spontaneous interaction between a moment in time and history. It is amazing how children, from a very young age, can learn how to give and receive forgiveness. They can learn from their mistakes and do teshuvah. They can become more caring members of the community. Learn concrete ways to guide children to know themselves, learn from their mistakes and go through a complete teshuvah process without lectures, punishments, yelling, put-downs or arguments. We can create caring cultures with Positive Discipline and Jewish values.

This first session will be text study to explore the complexities of teshuvah and its effect on our personal growth. We discuss the question: are mistakes really an opportunity to learn? Adults are invited to observe and/or participate in an engaging session with children. 

This session was made possible by a grant from The Covenant Foundation.
