“Oh Sister” – Greeting the Sabbath Queen with Bob Dylan

Jewish lore speaks of the Sabbath as a union of two star-struck partners, whose love animates the worship that welcomes the Sabbath and carries us on the wings of song through Saturday night. We’ll greet the “Shekhina,” or Sabbath Queen, with melodies inspired by Bob Dylan, and accompanied by community clergy

Awakening the Heart: Contemplative Shabbat Practice
Feb 18 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Awakening the Heart: Contemplative Shabbat Practice
Join us at CBI for an hour of chanting, meditation, and reflection. Using verses from several prayers, we’ll chant to begin opening our hearts. We’ll then move into a period of meditation with instructions to deepen our awareness of our inner lives. Finally, we’ll have a brief period to reflect on our experiences. Following our contemplative Shabbat practice, participants are welcome to join the regular Shabbat service taking place in the main sanctuary.

How Does It Feel? Dylan’s Many Masks and What It Means for Us

Purim is the season of masks, of extremes, of stories and rituals that challenge our day-to-day in order to teach us something new – just like rock and roll and just like Bob Dylan. Scholar and writer Dr. Stephen Daniel Arnoff will share a vision of masks and deeper understandings at the nexus of the wisdom of Purim and good old Bob Dylan.

Class after Kiddush luncheon/1pm(featuring Dylan’s own Heaven’s Door whiskey!), Beth Israel
