"The Candles of Our Season"

For members of Holy Comforter and Kol HaLev we can learn together about this season of expectation, preparation and fullness of spirit...and visions of Redemption!
Lights.  Camera.  Action!  A mini-course to deepen our appreciation of Advent and Christmas and the mystical ideas around Chanukah.
When Eve and Adam noticed that there were fewer and fewer hours of daylight they began to fear that the sun was fading away and death was imminent.  They fasted for eight days to try to avert the diminishment of the sun.  Once they observed the days getting longer they determined, this is the way of the world and fixed the period of the solstice as a time of celebration.  All are welcome to join us on Wednesday eveningsDecember 4, 11 and 18 at 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Family Chanukah Celebration

Please plan to attend Friday, December 20, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for our annual tradition - an informal gathering to light all of our chanukkiyot (menorahs) together, sing some songs, and enjoy an evening of fun and games! We will have a short Shabbat service followed by a community lighting of our candles. Light refreshments available. Please bring your menorah and some latkes to share.

Adult Ed Class - Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow.

Even if you missed the first sessions all are welcome to join Rabbi Steve for this engaging discussion on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the KHL room.  
Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow. What does the Kabbalistic tradition have to teach today’s seeker?  Are the ancient and mysterious symbols of any value to us, given the very different world in which we live?  How might Kabbalah be refitted so that it can serve as an appropriate vehicle for a very contemporary spiritual quest?  Can this be done without destroying the soul of the tradition?  Can a thinking person turn to an ancient wisdom source like Kabbalah without fleeing today’s reality and abandoning responsibility for life in this world? (From the preface of Art Green's book).
Text for the class: Green, A. (2004), Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow. Jewish Lights, Woodstock, VT. Available from Amazon and if you get it for Kindle Rabbi Steve will share his highlighting and notes.
