Spirituality Shabbat

Spirituality Shabbat  October 31, 2015 at 8:00 am - Yetman Trail  
The Shabbat Morning of Spirituality is  a unique, personal and spiritually fulfilling Shabbat Morning service.  Led by Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon, this relaxed and intimate service includes poetry, music, Jewish practices such as meditation, and some of our Shabbat morning service prayers experienced at a much slower pace.  Our reading and discussion of the Torah portion of the week focuses on the mystical and transformational aspects of the narrative. This Shabbat service gives us time for personal and communal connection to our Judaism, to one another and to the power of Torah. This service is open to all.
