Mindfulness with Cantor Attie and Daniel Rechtschaffen

Wednesday, September 10, 7:00 - 9:00 pm, Rinder Chapel

Judaism, at its very core, is all about mindfulness. Mindfulness means slowing down, paying attention, being grateful, taking pauses to appreciate where you are, who you are, and whom you are with. It’s also about forgiveness and compassion, about being conscious of where you are on your spiritual journey and evaluating what’s important. It’s about remembering that we are part of something much bigger than our own selves.

Sukkot with Rabbi Singer and Rabbi Mintz

Tuesday, October 14, 7:00 - 9:00 pm, hosted in San Francisco by congregant Susan Mack (the address will be provided upon RSVP)

Sukkot is the time when we are most open to experiencing pleasure and joy in the ordinarily prosaic act of “accepting the yoke of the sovereignty of Heaven.” - Kabbalat Ol Malchut Shama’yim

On the last evening of Sukkot, our Women's Group will meet for its own holiday celebration and, in moving traditional fashion, each "bring" one of our own departed female ancestors to "join" us through shared remembrances, in photos and stories, during a co-operative holiday dinner.  Rabbis Mintz and Singer will be with us to enhance our understanding of this time in the Jewish calendar.
