Join Molly Bajgot for a vibrant Shabbat prayer service. We will follow a traditional service structure with a twist. Come to hear new and familiar tunes, to sing, davven, and meditate.
Molly grew up in Eastern Massachusetts and now calls the Valley home. She is a queer, Ashkenazi Jew, singer-songwriter and Jewish community organizer currently living in Easthampton on unceded Pocumtuc and Nipmuc land. She works with both young people and adults to connect with and rediscover the innate magic in Judaism.
All Who are Hungry for community and freedom, come and celebrate!
Rabbi Andrea leads a service for her former home community Pnai Or of Central Connecticut on First Shabbats. We are welcome to join. Please watch your How To Participate, bi-weekly emails for zoom links.
This Purim we retell the ancient story of beauty, danger, intrigue and drama with a cast of thousands, a full musical score, and sock puppets. Intrigued? Intrigued enought o pop in to our zoom room at 6PM with your noise makers, beverages and snacks? It may not be the Super Bowl but it will be wild.
We invite you to join us on February 6th for a celebration of Tu B'Shevat - The New Year for the Trees. We will begin at 7 p.m. with Havdalah ( the ritual at the end of Shabbat) and then we will share poems that celebrate trees, nature, growth, winter, hope and renewal. This is just a partial list of the themes of our wonderful winter holiday that honors the trees and their actual and symbolic importance in our lives. We invite you to read a poem that you love or a poem that you have written that speaks to any of these themes or others that have meaning for you.
Join us for Shabbat and a Tu B'Shevat Seder. This seder will reflect Gershon Winkler's kabbalistic inspired seder, a little different than the "traditional".
