6:00 PM - Ma’ariva Aravim
Join us for a twilight circle of accessible, prayerful chant, song and silence, leading us towards relaxation and a night of peaceful sleep

10:30 AM - Saltwater, Circles, Spices: Sephardic Women’s Ritual Lore

Well into the 20th century, the Sephardic Jews of Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania had a living spirituality extending beyond the bounds of many modern understandings of Judaism. We shall learn a little of this ritual work through the eyes of sacred texts, early rabbis, and the women themselves, who sought to sweeten the darkness and heal troubled times.
