Introducing our New Reyim Lab for Jewish Spirituality

Seeking spiritual meaning is the heart of Jewish tradition. In modern times, however, it so often eludes us. We were taught to read or even sing the words in a siddur, but did we also learn how to pray?; how to develop a relationship with the Sacred?; how to call out and express our thoughts, fears, joy, hope, wonder, and vulnerability?

This new lab for Jewish spirituality at Reyim is meant to help us deepen our Jewish spiritual growth and learning. Together we will create a spiritual development program that will include the study of Mussar (the Jewish ethical spiritual tradition), singing nigunim, Jewish meditation, study of Jewish mysticism and Hasidism, spiritually-focused prayer services, individual spiritual direction/counseling, and creativity in arts that help us connect our lives to a sense of the holy.

A New Course with Rabbi Berman: The Wisdom of our Ancient Talmudic Tradition

Begins Tuesday November 19 at 7:30 p.m. with Rabbi Berman

Looking to the wisdom of our ancient tradition helps us clarify what we feel is true and morally non-negotiable, and find purpose and meaning in our lives. We will study Talmudic texts that address universal concerns that, two millennia later, are still at the heart of the human struggle.

This class will be interactive, conversational and spiritually-focused. While we will be looking at Hebrew and Aramaic to deepen our understanding of the texts, you don't need any background to join us.

Please join us on the following dates: January 7 and 21, February 4 and 25, March 17 and 31, April 28, May 12 and 26.
