Experience Shabbat Opens With Rave Reviews

From Marc Sussman:

I am very pleased to announce the beginning of the exciting new program at B’nai Moshe, Experience Shabbat, opened with a rousing success as 36 people were energized, spiritually nourished and enlightened by our facilitators Hannah Fine and Marc Sussman.

The next  Shabbat experience will be on Saturday, February 22 as we'll meet in the Cantor Klein Chapel  from   10 a.m. until 11:45 a.m., finishing in time to join the rest of the congregation for our delicious kiddush. Each week, we will focus and discuss two topics, each for approximately 45 minutes.

What it will not be: A traditional prayer service. We will not recite the prayers as set forth in the siddur. It will not be a Torah service. What it will be: An innovative experience designed to help you feel spiritually nourished and fulfilled. We hope that it will be a meaningful interval in your week that will increase your sense of community, a rich gathering that will result in you leaving the synagogue that day feeling like you have spent some time doing something truly worthwhile. It will be come-as-you-are. If that means a dress or suit, fine; if that means more casual attire, fine.  What will we do? We will learn together and from each other. Each week, we will experience the meaning of a specific prayer to discover how prayer is important to each of us. For example, we will explore the meaning of the blessings to have an aliyah to the Torah and how it is done; Ashrei; Friday night and Shabbat Kiddush; Adon Olam; and the Amidah. We will read and translate the Hebrew, and share the concepts in those words. We will teach each other about how we feel about the language of that prayer – do we feel it touches us emotionally; do we agree or disagree with the words; does it spiritually enrich us.

We will raise our voices together in song. We will learn new songs and relearn old ones. We will hum, we will sing nigunim, we will meditate, we will talk about thankfulness. 

We will discuss concepts of Judaism vis-à-vis the natural world; how environmental issues are Jewish issues. If it feels meaningful to the community we build, on some days we will may do yoga; or explore the concept of keeping kosher and what it means to be mindful about what we eat in a world beset by climate change.

We will be guided by the desires of our group in terms of what will be done each time. If someone wants to present a specific topic on a particular day, that will be encouraged.

Most of all, in a world filled with workday responsibilities and pressures, we will seek to renew our souls.

Please mark your calendars to join together on February 22 as we discover, or perhaps even          re-discover, prayer and our own prayer experiences as well as experiencing everything surrounding the Torah service with a hands on demonstration.
