Join us as we mark the 30th anniversary of the struggle of Women of the Wall (Nashot Hakotel) to pray out loud as women in the women’s section of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Women of the Wall gather every Rosh Hodesh (New Moon) and their efforts to conduct joyful prayer continue to be thwarted, even though the Israeli courts have ruled in their favor for the right to do so. Their actions are part of the greater quest for religious pluralism and equality, and recognition of the non-Orthodox branches of Judaism in Israel.
Jewish communities throughout the world are joining in solidarity with Women of the Wall this Shabbat, which coincides with International Women’s Day. Here at CBI, our Shabbat morning service will be women-led, with a special D’var Torah by Julie Sherman.

Join the Weizman and Simon families in celebrating as Talia Weizman becomes Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, March 16 at Congregation Beth Israel.
Kiddush following the service will be hosted by Mike Weizman & Della Simon in honor of their daughter Talia.
Just as healthy foods nourish us through the blood stream, so Jewish meditation nourishes our “soul stream.” Meditation can be transformative, taking us from the intellectual awareness of ourselves to a deeper spiritual practice that links us to Judaism in the most profound way. Each mitzvah, holy day and cycle of life has its own rhythm, nuance, taste and character. Jewish meditation is a practice of infuing their essence into our daily spiritual lives.
Ready to give it a try? Join us (usually) on the first and third Sunday of each month from 1pm – 3pm. No previous meditation experience necessary. This opportunity is free and open to all. Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, 43 North Libery Street in North Asheville.
