We gathered after Erev Rosh Hashanah services for a nice kiddush, great challah and of course, apples and honey! Plus we were treated to a new niggun by Rabbi Hanan which he shared on his portable little laptop piano keyboard while we all joined in!
If you have photos from any of the Ad Olam gatherings, email them to
firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get them posted for you!
See you on Friday night and Saturday for Yom Kippur services
and the four Yom Kippur afternoon Play-shops.
Yom Kippur Afternoon PlayShops 1:30 - 4:00 pm
Said Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel
"There were no days as festive as Yom Kippur afternoon"
In this spirit the afternoon theme will be meditation, song and process.
There will be two sessions. Each will have a choice of two offerings.
Session 1 - 1:45 - 2:45
Singing Alive with Rob Tobias
Participatory singing and moving together.
Multi part songs that awaken us at our core, moving us into the New Year.
We sing blessings, We sing renewal.
Open Heart Meditaton with Valerie Keartes
Connect with and feel your spiritual heart - Your connection with Source
Feel the Love and the Light of the Divine within
and experience more calm, peace, and joy in your daily life.
Session 2 2:55 - 3:55
Finding Your Direction for the Coming Year
with Gary Reiss PhD & Annie Greenberg
Yom Kippur is a time to let go of the past year,
and find our direction for the coming year.
It is a turning point to be conscious of.
Walking a spiritual path involves knowing and following that direction.
Through experiential exercises, we will find our path as an individual
and group for the coming year.
Chanting Into At-one-ment with Lisa Kaye
Sacred chant is a transformative journey.
It is about hearing with the 'inner' ear.
We step into a conscious awareness that we are One,
and that our connection to God is present in every moment.
