Gallery Exhibit: True Self Project

An exhibition of artwork in ceramics, quilts, sculptures, jewelry and more by members of the True Self Project, an Albuquerque community-based group. Have you ever wondered who your True Self is? The true self that is relaxed, open and joyful? Members of the True Self Project share art that explores their true selves, as well as their their false selves and their pain. The artists explore these concepts as they relate to inter-generational trauma. The True Self Project is guided by Dr. Marythelma Brainard-Ransom, Albuquerque psychologist, and retired educator and therapist. Artwork produced by the True Self Project was exhibited at the University of New Mexico Medical School Domenici Center and the City of Albuquerque Special Collections Library.

Post-Mythic Inquiries into the Nature of Reality and Consciousness

Post-Mythic Inquiries into the Nature of Reality and Consciousness

Meets in the Study the 1st and 3rd Sunday

Exploring Spirituality in a Post-Rabbinic World  facilitated by Miles Krassen
The Kabbalah is, at its deepest level, agnostic. The agnosticism of the Kabbalah is paradoxical-- pointing to "something" within human consciousness that is "knowable" in its very unknowability. This class will explore this "unknowable" mystery and its relationship to human experience, particularly how it is connected to our best aspirations. We will examine the sources in Jewish tradition that have attempted to reveal and explain this mystery, which are generally known as the Kabbalah. Everyone is welcome to attend this stimulating and challenging series with one of the most knowledgeable and original Jewish thinkers today.  Come learn about yourself and your world. Your generous donations pay for these classes. For more information please call the office at (505) 343-8227 or  visit ww.planetaryjudaism.org

We share songs and stories, food and conversation.

This is a potluck dinner, so please bring your favorite vegetarian dish to share. We gather at 6:30pm, with candle lighting starting promptly at 7pm. Come celebrate New Mexico's oldest Jewish community with us!

Post-Mythic Inquiries into the Nature of Reality and Consciousness

Post-Mythic Inquiries into the Nature of Reality and Consciousness

Meets in the Study the 1st and 3rd Sunday

Exploring Spirituality in a Post-Rabbinic World  facilitated by Miles Krassen
The Kabbalah is, at its deepest level, agnostic. The agnosticism of the Kabbalah is paradoxical-- pointing to "something" within human consciousness that is "knowable" in its very unknowability. This class will explore this "unknowable" mystery and its relationship to human experience, particularly how it is connected to our best aspirations. We will examine the sources in Jewish tradition that have attempted to reveal and explain this mystery, which are generally known as the Kabbalah. Everyone is welcome to attend this stimulating and challenging series with one of the most knowledgeable and original Jewish thinkers today.  Come learn about yourself and your world. Your generous donations pay for these classes. For more information please call the office at (505) 343-8227 or  visit ww.planetaryjudaism.org

Tent Minyan with Cantor JoAnn Rice

The Tent Minyan is a service that explores Jewish diversity while celebrating our commonality. We welcome Renewal, Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative and Orthodox members as we gather on the last Saturday of each month. Informal Hebrew chanting begins at about 9:45 am, and is followed at 10:00 am by the Morning service and Torah reading. At approximately 11:30, we will share Kiddush, followed by a D'var Torah (study session). The service is presented in three forms-Hebrew text, transliteration, and translation-so that everyone can participate in worship. Join us for this joyous, song-filled Shabbat.

Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat

A Chanting Kabbalat Shabbat service one Friday evening a month (usually the fourth Friday) provides a contemplative way to greet Shabbat through sacred Hebrew chanting and meditation. Celebrate the end of your week, nourish your soul and welcome Shabbat. Join us as we move into holy space/time in a meditative mode: chanting sacred phrases and melodies and then melting into silence. No prior knowledge or special talent is necessary, only the willingness and intention to go inside yourself, to listen deeply and to be in community with others who are engaged in this practice. Led by Judy Brown and Sofie Shefia Stephanie Cohen.  We meet at 7:30pm in Bayt B'racha, the building on the north side of the courtyard.
