Kol Neshama Minyan

2nd Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.

Join our rabbis, lay leaders, and special guests for a musical, meditative, and participatory prayer experience, during which we’ll find quiet space to sink into the peace of Shabbat, and we’ll give joyous voice to our neshamas (souls) as we open our hearts to Shabbat and to each other. The words “kol neshama” means “voice of the soul/breath.”

Shabbat Sit

Saturdays, 11:30 a.m. except 2nd Saturdays, 9:15 a.m.

Led by congregants Larry and Diane Yermack, this Saturday morning experience explores silence and connection to spirituality through simply being present. Using a technique called mindfulness meditation, you will find yourself slowing down, calming your mind and cultivating awareness, compassion and Jewish wisdom. Whether you are new to meditation or have many years of experience, you are warmly welcome. Larry and Diane have studied, taught, and practiced “mindfulness meditation” extensively, including teaching with Rabbis Sheila Weinberg and Jeff Roth.
