Experience Shabbat with a New Shabbat Experience

From Mark Sussman:

I am very pleased to announce the beginning of an exciting new program at B’nai Moshe: Experience Shabbat.

This will be an entirely new concept in our Shabbat experience. Starting on February 1, we’ll meet in the Cantor Klein Chapel on the first and third Saturdays of the month, 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 beginning February 1 as we discuss "Expressing Gratitude Every Morning with Words and Song" and "The Design of the Shabbat Services - What's In It and Why."

It's a Wrap!     World Wide Wrap Feb. 2

Women and Men.  Boys and Girls.  Join together with conservative Jews all over the world in the mitzvah of wearing tefillin on Super Bowl Sunday.  If you've never worn tefillin you'll be shown how to properly "dress in leather."   In the daily shema we read "thou shalt bind them upon thy hand and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes."  That's tefillin! 

We'll follow morning prayers with a delicious breakfast provided free of charge by the generous and talented chefs of Men's Club.  All we ask is that you RSVP for breakfast.

Chanukah Light Parade Spreads Light and Joy

B'nai Moshe's Chanukah Light Parade on December 28 was a huge success!  The weather was perfect and our hearts were warmed by spreading light throughout the community during the time of year when darkness abounds. 

We traversed the nearly mile-long parade route with smiles on our faces, singing and dancing and basking in the holiday of Chanukah. 

We ended up at the home of Shana and Rabbi Shalom Kantor and their family, who graciously opened up their home to celebrate with the  community with food and drink and an amazing make your own sufganiyot fryer, which was a BIG hit with all ages!
