Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle @ Congregation Beth HaTephila
Jul 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle @ Congregation Beth HaTephila | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

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.

Torah on Tap @ Archetype Brewing
Jul 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Torah on Tap @ Archetype Brewing | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Join us on the last Sunday of the month at Archetype Brewing (dowtown north) for a refreshing and often provocative discussion over a pint (or two) of great brew. Each month, we take on a new topic – often ripped from the headlines of today’s news. We spend the first 45 minutes wrapping our arms around it, defining it, dissecting and analyzing it from various viewpoints. Then we spend the rest of the time discussing it from Judaism’s point of view.

  • What’s Judaism’s take on universal healthcare?
  • Would Moses walk the streets of Chicago today packing heat?
  • Is it okay to punch a white supremacist?

Torah on Tap gives us a chance to learn, vent, share and, most of all, understand what 4,000 years of cultural development, debate and dialogue has to say about some of the issues that confront us today. Torah on Tap is free and open to all. Varying viewpoints are not only welcome, but encouraged.

In addition to drinks, Archetype also offers small, locally-made bites available for purchase, including Poppy Popcorn, Asheville Pretzel Company pretzels, and Hickory Nut Gap Farm meat sticks. Plenty of parking in the rear.

See you there!

Workshop on Forgiveness at Beth Israel
Inner Preparation for Yom Kippur 5780

October 5, 1:00pm – 3:00pm

On October 5, the afternoon of Shabbat Shuva- the Shabbat of
Return, join us to prepare to return to hearts released of blame, shame and
judgment. We prepare so that we will have another year to live in the
Temple of our hearts. We have the opportunity to choose compassionate
connection to ourselves, to others, and to LIFE instead of to punishing
judgments. Facilitator Roberta Wall is a CBI member and an internationally certified
trainer in Nonviolent Communication. Her website is

This event is sponsored by Congregation Beth Israel (CBI) . It will run from
1-3 on October 5, beginning after lunch following Shabbat services at CBI.
All are welcome to services, lunch and the workshop.
