Shalom from Temple Israel! We're finishing up the spring with some Adult Learning offerings. Our online course The Royal Road to Connecting with the Divine begins this Thursday and will cover teachings on spiritual practice and wisdom for life from Sefer Derekh HaMelekh, by Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira (Click on his name to visit his Wikipedia page and learn more about this fascinating character).
Shalom! We've got a special Shabbat morning service this weekend: Resting in the Land: An Elemental Sabbath. Interfaith Minister Dori Midnight and Andrea will lead us through a celebration and study of the torah portion Emor, which describes the seasonal arc and the cycles of seven which organize the ancient Jewish calendar. Starts at 10am.
Shalom! We have a beautiful concert coming up this weekend that we hope you can join for. Eventide Singers will be presenting a participatory concert/workshop exploring the role of music and presence in hospice and recovery care. More information on this concert, and more, is below.
Shalom - What a weekend! Around 250 people came through the synagogue to celebrate the arts with us. The social hall was filled with vendors showing off beautiful artwork and functional pieces. Rhonda's classroom was packed with children jumping up and down, concert-goers enjoyed music and storytelling, workshop participants learned new skills, and so much more.
IT'S ALMOST HERE!! Temple Israel's Art, Creativity, & Community weekend of programs celebrating the arts in a Jewish context is happening this weekend! Check out the event's link & see what you won't want to miss!
