Shabbat In The Circle

Saturday, 18 July, 2020 26 Tammuz 5780

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join us for a special Shabbat morning gathering, Shabbat In the Circle.

We will begin at 10:00am with the study of Hassidic and other mystical texts then discuss how we can apply them in our daily lives.

This will be followed by a collaborative musical gathering based on the Shabbat morning service incorporating melodies, poems and dance to enhance our Shabbat.

We will also explore the intersection of Jewish and other sacred spiritual techniques to see how we can enrich our connection to the divine and to one another. 

Please remember that you will need to register. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will only have room for 25 people to attend so please register as soon as possible.
