Thoughts on Time 

It is said that our fate for the coming year is set as Yom Kippur ends. So how do we spend our time? How do we think about how we spend our time?

Join Hillel’s Executive Director, Andrea Hoffman for a mini-book group to look at themes of life and death. We’ll read and discuss two (very) short stories by David Eagleman from his book Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, and a poem by Yehuda Amichai, A Man in His Life.
