Enchanted Circle with Rabbi Shefa Gold

Chanting, the repetition of a sacred phrase, is an ecstatic form of meditation that can open the doors of the heart, clear the mind of clutter, focus and refine intentions, and connect us to each other. The chant can attune us to ever-deepening levels of meaning, unlock the treasures of the heart, and give us an opportunity to generously serve each other.  By entering into silence after a chant, we can receive both the Divine influx and the gifts that bubble up from the soul. In this evening of chant we will taste and experience the power and potential of this ecstatic practice.

Jewish Renewal Shabbat Service with Rabbi Chavah Carp

Parashat MiKetz explores the power of dreams in Judaism, both the lucid dreams we have in our awake state of mind and the ones that come to us at night. This is also the portion where a  great Tikkun-healing occurs with Joseph, his brothers and their father. In our interactive D'var Torah we will engage with the  Tree of Life, and stand inside the Sephirot. Thank you in advance for the many Torah readers this month. 

Pot luck Oneg after the service.   Bring latkes, donuts- hopefully gluten free options too!

Renewal Shabbat Service with Rabbi Chava Karp

This month is Chesvan, often called the bitter month; the usual explanation is because there are no holidays. I think the bitterness is revealed in this week's Torah portion with stories of lies, deceit, the struggle of a mother's misery, and a son who gives up his birthright for a bowl of red lentils. And if that's not enough, there is the famous line: "Mother always liked you better!"  Yes - all that from this week's Torah portion Toldot. You are invited to bring your problems to this special Shabbat and some red lentils to share at the Oneg following the service
