The program is FREE and OPEN to the public. And, in order to prepare sufficient food (lunch and shallus shudas will be provided) we ask you to register below. Donations are welcome. Participants can come for all or part of the day.
We begin at 8:45 a.m. with Torah study looking at commentary from the Hasidic tradition (R’ Kalonomys Kalmish Shapira, the Piazetzna Rebbe and R’ Shalom Noach Bersovsky, the Selonama Rebbe).
At 10:00 a.m. we begin our morning Shabbat chanting service led by Marcia Glass-Siegel, rabbis and cantor. The Torah service will be led by Reb Tova Dodi and Emily Stern.
Kiddush lunch will be provided at 12:30 p.m. and afterward we will explore text from "Wrapped In A Holy Flame" written by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Schlomi, the founder of the Renewal Movement.
A meditative Mincha (afternoon) service is at 3:30 p.m., lead by Jacke Schroeder and Rita Singer. After Mincha we will have a Shallush Sheudes (Seudat Shlishi) with a showing of the movie "Raising The Sparks" by Chuck Davis and an ensuing discussion on the Renewal Movement (snacks will be provided).
We conclude with music provided by the Kol HaLev ensemble, Shabbat Unplugged, including a musical interlude by Paula (Shira) Kurrus performing her own composition "Longing" followed by Havdalah led by Rich Reiches.
Please join in for a day of study and prayer, reflection and joy.
