High Ledges Hike & Service

Saturday, May 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:30 pm

David Arfa and Rabbi Andrea will co-lead a prayerful hike and Torah discussion, starting at the High Ledges parking lot. We’ll provide kiddush and you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch.

All are welcome to join for this Lag B’Omer (High Spring Celebration) contemplative Shabbat walk/service at the High Ledges on May 13 at 10am.  As always, these services are offered free of charge.

This contemplative service at the High Ledges Audubon Sanctuary combines listening and sharing.  It is an easy hike filled with walking meditation, prayerful activities and natural wonders.  Along the way, we will listen and share with the land, texts, each other and ourselves. Together, we will explore our blessing tradition and the place where blessings come from.  

Sabbath and Hallelujah…Have you ever noticed that King James, with his incredible translation project of the Bible, chose not to translate three words…Sabbath, Hallelujah and Amen.  These are direct Hebrew words so filled with incredible powers, in this day and in our praise and in our agreement, the translators were overwhelmed.  Together we will enter into these words and bring this day to life. Rooted in wonder, we shall see what this day may invoke, what praises spill forth, and what we are in agreement with.  All backgrounds are welcome.

Please RSVP if you would like to join in. We’ll meet at the second parking area, down the hill and linger by the cars a tad longer if we are expecting you.  We’ll plan to finish at the High Ledges by 12 noon. 

Grape juice and Challah will be provided. Bring your own water, and snacks to share at Kiddush (Holy Refreshments)- Please share this note with anyone who may be interested. All are welcome.
