Week of August 2-7

A WAY IN TO REACH OUT
Sunday, August 2  10:30-11:30 a.m.

As our lives have gone in unexpected directions, these workshops offer the opportunity to pause, reflect and write about the things that are, that were and those that will be. Each session will offer 2-3 prompts to write about, with short meditations before each to give us time to explore what arises within. A writing coach, a supportive group, and a notebook… the perfect set up for a beautiful morning. (Open to all levels of writers!)

ZENTANGLING FOR LOVE  
Sunday, August 2  3:00 – 4:30 p.m. 
Join us for a very special session of Zentangling. This Sunday, not only will you be able to relax and lose yourself in the guided, meditative doodling, but your finished product will then be framed and delivered to a resident at the King David Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Our gifted teacher Sarah Reading will guide you through the always-easy, straightforward strokes, and help you create a beautiful one of a kind piece of art. We will deliver these drawings, each in their own frame, to let the King David residents know that they are not alone and that we are holding them in our hearts.
A few things to know before Sunday’s program:
  1. Gather your regular Zentangling supplies (a #2 pencil, a fine tip black marker or pen, a tortillon/q-tip or paper towel for smudging)
  2. If you have one handy, grab a red pen or fine tip marker
  3. Prepare a pre-drawn rectangle that is 4 X 6 inches.
SOUL BOOSTS – Monday -Friday
8:45 – 9:00 am MORNING GRATITUDE with Rabbi Saroken and  Rabbi Shalva (on Zoom & Facebook)

There are times when each of us feels stuck, times when we feel down, or alone, or emotionally spent, and struggle to find the blessings. Our morning gratitude is there to help us through those stretches and the good ones too, and to help us all start the day with faith, hope, gratitude and an awareness of our blessings. Join Rabbi Saroken and Rabbi Shalva to refocus the mind, heart and soul and start the day off with love.

TU B’AV EVENT TO THANK OUR SUPPORTERS
Tuesday, August 4 7:30 p.m.

If you contributed to the Show Your Love campaign in June, you should have received an invitation to this special offering, time together to learn about love with Rabbi Saroken. If you missed the evite, contact [email protected] for more information.

 

ZENTANGLING with Kathy Shapiro
Wednesday, August 5 3:00 – 4:00 p.m

Zentangling has been the rage for months now. Hundreds of people join each week to create works of art, on our own but together. We love the excitement over the process and we support the healthy addiction and of course, we get it. New tangles, new creations and new Torah each week but the relaxation, quieting of the mind, and the unexpected works of art, those remain true in each session. Join Kathy Shapiro and Sarah Reading as they help us see that we are all capable of creating our own works of art; line by line, circle after circle, and pattern by pattern.

#nofilter – MY SO CALLED PERFECT CAREER
Wednesday, August 5  7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Our newest program is for those of us in our late 30s, 40s and 50s to talk about the things that matter. We’ll get together every other Wednesday for an unfiltered, TMI, best friend conversation, facilitated by our soulful and very real woman’s woman, (Dr.) Andrea Leiber who will encourage us to tell it like it is, embrace our truth and weave some great Jewish wisdom in to all of our conversations.

 

A VIRTUAL CHAIR YOGA CLASS
Thursday, August 6 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

For those who are missing physical activity right now, you’ll find comfort and benefit from a stretch with our beloved teacher Robyn Katz. Improve your posture and balance, strengthen your core muscles, and get personalized instruction as Robyn coaches us virtually.  And of course, there will always be a twist of Torah to nourish the soul. 

THE KICKSTART: 4 SOUL TRAITS TO NURTURE IN 5781
Friday, August 7   9:15 – 10:15 a.m.
Wisdom Leader Edie Raphael will take our community on a Mussar-inspired deep dive into nurturing four character traits the world needs now: chesed (lovingkindness), anavah (humility), kavod (honor), and hishtavut (equanimity).
Every Friday in August
