Week of April 5

WRITING WORKSHOP with Barbara Roswell
Sunday, April 5 10:00 – 11:15 a.m.

Grab your journal, a mug of hot coffee or tea and a comfy place to sit. This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!  Barbara Roswell, a gifted and encouraging and skilled teacher will be leading us and if you’ve never learned from Barbara – you’re in for a real treat!  What we learned last week from participants, is that writing, reflecting and sharing our thoughts is good for the soul. So for the next three Sundays, Barbara will guide us with short prompts and exercises to stretch our creative muscles.  She’ll be weaving in Passover themes that will be more relevant than ever in this current moment in time. Start a writing practice, enhance the one you already have, or just jump in even once, and you will undoubtedly feel like you gave yourself a precious gift! (No pressure to come to all sessions.  Let’s all just keep taking things one day at a time, maybe one week at a time. We’ll figure the rest out later.)

ZENTANGLING with Sarah Reading & Rabbi Ben Shalva
Sunday, April 5 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. with Sarah Reading

Looking to take a break from the things that are weighing on your heart and mind? Come lose yourself in a session of guided, meditative doodling.  Our session will begin with a brief “Torah tangle” led by Rabbi Ben Shalva’s and then we’ll start creating. Do you have to be an artist? Definitely not. If you’ve ever doodled in the margins of a page, you can do this. Use official Zentangling supplies if you have them or, if you don’t, just grab any old pencil, fine-tipped black pen, and a plain piece of paper. If you’ve never tried Zentangling, this is the perfect time. Last Sunday, we had over 85 people (from 8-90 years old) Zentangling with us and it seems that everyone is hooked.  (So much so that we added a weekday session). And for those who asked about extending an invitation to family and friends… Of course! There is (virtual) space for everyone!

10-MINUTE SOUL BOOSTS 
This week we’ll have our Soul Boosts on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Our soul boosts are providing people with new rituals to anchor our days:  Tune in for 10 minute transitions that will help begin our days with gratitude and peacefulness, transition from the work days into the evenings with calmness and centering, and to say goodnight with intentionality, reflection, an opportunity to let go, and a sweet and hope-filled song.  All boosts are grounded in Judaism and spirituality.
Please note new times for this week:
8:45 – 8:55 am MORNING GRATITUDE with Rabbi Dana Saroken (Monday- Wednesday)
5:00 – 5:10 pm AFTERNOON MEDITATION with Rabbi Ben Shalva (Monday & Tuesday)
9:00 – 9:10 pm NIGHTTIME GRATITUDE with Abby Woloff (Monday & Tuesday)
A VIRTUAL CHAIR YOGA CLASS
Tuesday, April 7 10:30-11:30 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, balance and strength all while connecting to our community. Participants continue to give this offering rave reviews, loving that Robyn is coaching everyone virtually and sharing that it feels great to move and to strengthen the core muscles.  (Since Thursdays are holidays for a while, we’re moving Robyn’s classes to Tuesdays so we can still squeeze in some time to take care of our bodies and of course, there will always be a twist of Torah [at the beginning or end of the session] for the soul.)

Embracing Imperfection – New Cohort Forming

One of our most popular programs is going virtual and it’s more relevant than ever!  This six-week series explores traits of courage, resiliency, authenticity, self-compassion, gratitude and joy, vulnerability and strength.   Rabbi Miriam Burg will facilitate these sessions using Brene Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection, videos from Brene Brown, and adding Jewish texts and wisdom to enhance the conversations among participants.  We have learned that an intimate group of consistent and committed participants is ideal so we are capping the number of people participating. We will begin a waitlist for a future cohort when we reach our max. The price for this program is $100. 

Program dates: Tuesday April 21 9:00-10:30 a.m., Thursday April 23 7-8:30 p.m., Tuesday April 28 9:00-10:30 a.m., Thursday April 30 7-8:30 p.m., Tuesday May 5 9:00-10:30 a.m. and Thursday May 7 7-8:30 p.m.
