September 3, 2022, 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
This first Shabbat in Elul we’re excited to offer a variety of activities to help your heart and mind focus on preparing for the upcoming holy day season. Join us for one or all of the offerings.
9:00 a.m. – Torah Study
10:30 a.m. – Singing Bowls Meditation
UH member, Maretta Shaw will lead us in this meditative practice. Singing bowls are used to invoke meditation or relaxation through the resounding vibrations and pleasant sounds it emanates when played. Singing bowls can also be used in sound therapy to induce healing of mind, body, and spirit.
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Welcoming In the New Year DIY Projects
Join Rabbi Rosenberg for crafty DIY projects for the sake of Hiddur Mitzvah – elevating your holiday celebrations. Projects will include: A welcome mat, candle centerpiece, and challah cover. Cost: $20 per person/family (this includes 1 of each project)
12:30 – 2:00 p.m.: Lunch break: Bring your own lunch and schmooze or go out and grab something on your own.
2:00—3:30 p.m.: Creating Your Tree of Mindfulness
Cantor Eichaker will explain the 10 Kabbalistic Spheres and invite participants to fill in their own pre-Holy Days sefirot that line up with the 10 original sephirot. This exercise will allow participants to recognize their personal attributes and help to frame these Holy Days in unique and personal way.
