Join Ariela HaLevi, yoga instructor, for a night of revelation through the body and soul. Shavuot is an accumulation of all the hard inner work we have done from Passover to this night. On Shavuot, we find ourselves before God with ahava, a deep love, and a deep sense of gratitude. Let’s discover together how body tefillah (prayer), through gentle movement/yoga, can uncover such a deep sense of holiness and love for ourselves, our world and God.
Join Miriam Blue for insights into the Book of Ruth. Explore the themes of return to the Land of Israel, the bonds of friendship and love, and the commitment of a young widow to join the Jewish people, who would become the great-grandmother of King David.
