WHAT TO EXPECT
What can I expect Shabbat morning? We start with a half-hour of simple meditation that is lightly guided --no previous experience necessary--allowing us to fully arrive and deepen our sense of presence. Much of the morning service is made up of Hebrew chants--a short Hebrew phrase is repeated multiple times to allow us to really sink into its deeper meaning and to open our hearts. We may play with different ways of arriving in our bodies as well. We always build in time for silent prayer and meditation among the oaks and fields of Ragle Park. We then have space to encounter the weekly Torah portion--creating space for meaningful discussion of those things that really matter to us, in conversation with the vastness of centuries-old Jewish conversation. Finally, we close with motzi and kiddush. If you would like to bring food to create a fuller meal, please do so!
We welcome you to come for all or any part of the experience.
