Friday, June 11, 12-1 Masada: From Jewish Revolt to Modern Myth: Magness, Jodi: 9780691167107: Amazon.com: Books

Two thousand years ago, 967 Jewish men, women, and childrenthe last holdouts of the revolt against Rome following the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Templereportedly took their own lives rather than surrender to the Roman army. This dramatic event, which took place on top of Masada, spawned a powerful story of Jewish resistance that came to symbolize the embattled modern State of Israel.
In her book on this subject, Dr. Jodi Magness, an archaeologist at UNC Chapel Hill who has excavated at Masada, explains what happened there, how we know it, and how recent developments might change understandings of the story. Incorporating the latest findings, she integrates literary and historical sources to show what life was like for Jews under Roman rule during an era that witnessed the reign of Herod and Jesus’s ministry and death.
MASADA  From Jewish Revolt to Modern Myth is available for sale on a variety of internet outlets.   Our informal discussion group meets online via Zoom every Friday from 12 – 1.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise.  If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at jbjacoby@uncc.edu.

Online Kabbalat Shabbat Services @ CBI
Jul 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Online Kabbalat Shabbat Services @ CBI | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

With services unavoidably cancelled, the Ritual Committee is working hard to find ways we can support each other as a community when we can’t be together in person. It’s very distressing to be unable to say Kaddish for a loved one, or to contemplate not sharing a Seder meal with friends and family. We’d like to share with you some plans we have for filling these gaps in our lives.

Please join us for Kabbalat Shabbat services via Zoom.  As long as at least 10 adults log in, we’ll be able to say Kaddish, so please consider attending, even if you’re not a Friday night regular.

You can join the service by going to Our Virtual Community here, then scroll down and click on the blue Kabbalat Shabbat Service button.

If you’d like to borrow a siddur for use at home while services are cancelled, we’ll be happy to lend you one!  Please contact the office for details.

Online Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle
Jul 4 @ 2:30 pm

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 infusing their essence into our daily spiritual lives.

Ready to give it a try? Join us via Zoom (every Sunday from 2:30pm – 4pm. No previous meditation experience necessary.  This opportunity is free and open to all. Please contact Linda Wolf at linda@networktype.com for the online meeting information.
