Kavannah: Using the month of Elul to Prepare

Adults: Focus on Teshuvah, Tefillah Tzedaka: Using Reflection, Movement, and Music to get ready for the High Holy Days

  • Set the tone with musical meditation
  • Begin reflection with a wholistic study of Shalom through an online lecture from Rabbi Arielle Hanien, co-founder of Neshama Center: “Embodying Wholeness: Integration Through rituals. We’ll investigate our individual responses to our own rituals and look inside to prepare for Teshuvah, return to God, and try to get to a deeper level of personal connection with Teshuvah.
  • Tefillah: Focus on the emotional attachment to the High Holiday liturgy through an investigation of the “Missinai Tunes” that are particular to the High Holidays, text study, and enjoy a musical interpretation by violinist Rebecca Zapen Douglass.
  • Tzedaka: We’ll discuss righteous behavior as we study the biblical figure of Hannah, whose story we hear during the Haftarah  reading on the first day of Rosh Hashanh ,  through “Hannah raises her voice,” part of the “Girls in Trouble” curriculum made possible by the covenant Foundation.
  • Apples and honey tastings to follow.
