[streaming] Ruach Shabbat Mussar & Meditation Service
May 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Service lead by Rabbi Greg Wolfe and Student Rabbi Deni Marshall.
Explore the wisdom of Mussar practice at our Mussar “Ruach (Spirit) Shabbat” experience to open our hearts and spirit through chant and silence, and explore Jewish teachings around the middot, spiritual qualities. On this Shabbat, we will explore the middah of of Hakarat Ha Tov, gratitude and blessings, in light of this week’s Torah portion.
Mussar is a Jewish spiritual practice that offers concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful life, based on the concept that if we transform ourselves we can transform the world. One Mussar teacher described Mussar as” teaching the heart what our mind already understands.”
If you are seeking a soulful Shabbat with less formal prayers – this is for you. If you are seeking ways to grow wiser in your everyday life – this is for you. If you aren’t so sure about chanting and silence, give it a try anyway. You might be surprised at how the combination of music and silence calms us, connects us, and creates space for new ways of thinking and acting to emerge. This is an ongoing spiritual experiment at CBH for those who want a different experience for Shabbat morning. We will have one aliyah read from the Torah and a Mussar teaching experience, too! We will say Kaddish at the end of the service.
