Preparing the Heart for the High Holidays:
The month of Elul is a time to prepare ourselves for the profound moments of Teshuva, return, and the blessings of community found in the High Holidays. A mixture of contemplative text study, meditation, music and discussion, this workshop will help us understand ourselves and the process of growth and change so we can enter the High Holidays with a sense openness and strength.
The classes can be taken as a pair or individually.
Class One: An introduction to the spiritual themes of the Yamim Noraim and the path of Teshuva
Class Two: The joys and challenges of traditional liturgy; Teshuva as daily practice.
Seminar lead by Rabbi Boris at Dorsehi Emet, 7 pm, Sept 13 or Sept 20
Please contact the office to sign up for the class.
Come experience the unique joy and spirit of Jewish mystical chant and song, blending traditional and contemporary Jewish prayer, responsive singing and meditative phrases to instrumental backup. Lead by Rabbi Boris and guest musicians from Dorshei Emet, this promises to be the first in an ongoing series that is open to all spiritual seekers, Jewish and non-Jewish, wishing to share in an uplifting, sacred communal musical experience.
Sunday, Sept 25, 4-5 pm, Vidalia Yoga Studio, 5276 Notre-Dame-de-Grace Ave.
