A Time to Mourn

The Saturday evening at the start of the month of Av is the beginning of a time of mourning in the Jewish calendar. Everyone with empathy feels both delight and grief at the states of miracle and disrepair we face together in planetary life. One way to avoid despair is to feel all our feelings!
In this simple grief ritual and circle, we'll touch our deep connections to the world and life which are the root of our caring and concern. Come to support and be supported. Sher, Margie, and Andrea are convening.

Mikvah @ Gardeners Falls

Shelburne Mikvah is Back! All are invited to a watery immersion to mark the freshness of Shabbat. Our first Mikvah of the season is happening this Friday, May 31, at 4:45. These Deerfield River Immersions (co-ed- with swimwear), are brief and refreshing; our ceremony is simple . The River shares her power with all who dare.
