Perhaps no one writes with more authority, more generosity of spirit, and more depth and understanding on tshuvah than Rav Kook. Join Josh Gressel for an Elul study of select passages from "Lights of Penitence" – Rav Kook's most famous and most studied work. A $36 donation to the Netivot Shalom Adult Education Fund is requested. No one turned away for lack of funds.
