with Rabbi Eliana Jacobowitz
Sunday December 20, 9:30-11:00 AM
Come learn about the ancient practice of laying tefillin. In this workshop we will learn what laying tefillin is all about. We will learn the why but focus on the how. If you have always been curious about this ancient tradition, if you wanted to begin laying tefillin as part of your spiritual practice, or if you want a refresher on the how to, please join us.
Owning your own tefillin is not necessary. We will have extra sets for you.
