Values and Deliberate Living Class 

We will skip this Thursday (Happy Thanksgiving!) and meet again on Thursday, December 3, at 8:00 p.m. Join us for an exploration on how to better live an intentional, value-based life. We begin each virtual 40-minute class by looking at a quote from a Jewish source, or other wisdom tradition, that focuses on a certain value; and then share the successes and challenges we each face in cultivating these values in our own lives. The quote to be discussed will be listed next week. To join the virtual class click here. Please contact facilitators Judy or Kenny with any questions.

New Virtual Practical Kabbalah Class

Rabbi Steven Silvern will be leading a new 12 week virtual Kabbalah class on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. There are many forms of meditation. Practical Kabbalah adopts “focused meditation” and provides a framework for directing one’s focus. As you might imagine there are complexities beyond the simple structure of the Tree of Life (the 10 creative energies/sfirot).  R’ Joseph Gikatilla (1248—1305?) in his book Gates of Light brings a system where the various names of God become the focus for meditating/praying and provide keys to understanding. We will use Gates of Light as the basis for exploring meditation focused on the names of God. The class will also take a look at the Ba’al Shem Tov’s practical Kabbalah through monthly explorations of his Torah study. For the virtual meeting link and information click here
 

Literature at Lunch

Our next Literature at Lunch will be held on Saturday, December 19 at noon. Join Gail Lipsitz virtually to discuss Alice Hoffman's newest novel, "The World That We Knew" (2019). This is a gripping story blending fact, fiction and fantasy. Set in France in 1941 and incorporating historical events, people and places, the novel focuses on how the war affects several fictitious families and individuals, particularly three remarkable young women.  
Hoffman's emphasis is on resistance to the Nazis, highlighting the courage of Jews and Gentiles in fighting the evil that is engulfing Europe.  Among the cast of characters are some imaginary and mystical creatures, including a golem, angels, demons, and animals that speak! Bring your lunch and join us virtually for the discussion of this spellbinding novel led by Gail Lipsitz. Start reading this book now which is available in libraries and as a Simon & Schuster paperback at Barnes and Noble and the Ivy Bookshop
. Any questions, please email Gail.
