    Tuesday, Mar 12th 7:30p to 9:00p
    Part 3 of a 3-Part Series: What makes a Jewish story sacred? Join us as we hear stories, debate, discuss, and appreciate three very different types of Jewish stories. You do not need to attend all sessions to participate. Mar. 12: Hasidic - From the Past 250 Years What can we learn from Jewish oral storytelling about how to tell a good story and tell it well? What makes for a good story in the first place? In this session, Rabbi David will tell a story or two and share wisdom from his teacher Maggid Yitzhak Buxbaum (z”l), author of 10 books and a deep student of the Hasidic tradition of Jewish spiritual storytelling. Enjoy some soulful storytelling, and learn to balance entertainment with the pursuit of that elusive storytelling goal: identification, or the listener’s feeling that the story being told is actually the listener’s story RSVP appreciated: adulted@congregationoratid.org Zoom link: http://tinyurl.com/holymosescoa
