Shifting Moods: from Bombardment with the Present to the Annual Attempt at Repentance and Hope for Forgiveness with Lewis M. Barth, Rabbi, Ph.D, D.H.L., Psy.D.

This session will explore how we can shift our minds and souls from the distressing present moment to focus on the tasks the Ten Days of Repentance are all about. We will read together and discuss a 4th century rabbinic sermon for Rosh Hashanah to try to open our hearts to live, at least for this season, in the world of spiritual values and biblical texts and stories that have shaped and continue to influence how Jews do a real heshbon hanefesh, a soul-reckoning. Please bring an open mind, some curiosity, and a willingness to engage.)

Lewis M. Barth is Professor Emeritus of Midrash and Related Literature at Hebrew Union College-Los Angeles. He is a native of Los Angeles, graduated from UCLA, studied at HUC’s Los Angeles Campus, and received Rabbinic ordination and his Ph.D. from HUC in Cincinnati. He was a member of the faculty at the Los Angeles Campus beginning in 1969 and served as Dean from 1970 to 1979 and again from 1997 to 2006. After his retirement in 2006 he continued to teach at HUC until June, 2012. During these years he became a Non-Clinical Candidate and then a Research Candidate at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles. He received his Doctorate in Psychoanalysis from ICP, February 3, 2016. His psychoanalytic practice is in Encino, CA. He and his wife, Dr. Joye Weisel-Barth, have been members of Leo Baeck Temple for three decades!
