In this workshop we will start with some warm ups before jumping into lettering. We will practice writing each of the letters in the aleph…

Our Potluck Shabbat dinner and Tu B'shvat Seder was a great success in January, and we are looking forward to getting together again on the Third Friday in February.

The rabbis tell us that when the month of Adar comes in, Joy increases. This is why we add an extra month of Adar…

In January we had our first Hebrew Calligraphy and Art Workshop in which we created posters for an eastern wall in our home so that we would know which way to face when praying. Along the way, we learned a little bit from the Sefer Yetzira -- a primary kabbalistic work that tells about how the letters of the Hebrew Aleph Bet were used to create the universe, and we learned a bit about the basic strokes involved in creating…

In Hebrew, the word for "intention" is "kavvana". Sometimes in a regular prayer service, the kavvana can get lost in the rush to say all the appointed prayers at the appointed times and finish everything so we can all go home. This month, we're going to have an opportunity to slow down, get deep into the meaning of each prayer, and focus our kavvana with guidance from traditional Jewish mystical sources. This service, inspired by the Jewish Renewal movement and…

Can you spare an hour or two on Sunday April 14? Join us at 10am so we can make sure that all the dishes are ready for passover, all the carpets are clean, and there are no hidden crumbs in places no one ever thinks crumbs will fall.
