Overflowing: A Shabbat Afternoon Gathering

As the sun is setting on Shabbat, some have the tradition of singing Psalm 23, in which King David proclaims, “Kosi revayah/My cup runs over!” Shabbat is a day when we can refill our cup—with rest and rejuvenation, with connection to community and to spirit—so that, by the last few magical hours of the day, that cup is overflowing. Join Hebrew College rabbinic intern Sam Tygiel as we gather to savor this time.

This month, the Hebrew month of Adar, we have the opportunity to make one of the most important spiritual decisions of the year: choosing a Purim costume! Together, through song, Torah study and discussion, we’ll explore the hidden depths of this joyous and strange holiday and the ways it invites us to access hidden parts of ourselves.

We’ll also spend some time thinking about our own past and future Purim costumes and getting in touch with the  power of physically inhabiting another identity in a religious context. We invite you to bring a single piece of a costume like a hat or jacket or a prop to help us get into the Purim spirit!

We’ll end our time together with Havdalah.

Location & Accessibility

We’ll be gathering in the social hall of a church near Davis Square. Please register to receive the address. The location is ADA accessible, with all-gender bathrooms. If you have further questions about accessibility, please be in touch at info@asiyah.org.

COVID Safety

Masks will be required at all times during the event. All participants must be fully vaccinated (i.e. having received as many doses as you’re eligible for, including a booster shot). When you register, you’ll be asked to confirm your vaccination status.

This event, celebrating the shmita values of rest and release, is part of Asiyah’s shmita year programming, brought to you with support from CJP.
