Milk & Honey Hour @ CBI
Feb 16 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Milk & Honey Hour @ CBI | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

CBI’s Milk & Honey Hour brings together young Jewish families to schmooze and acclimate their little ones (newborn to 4 yrs) to their spiritual home away from home. Once a month on the third Saturday of the month, we meet at CBI for an hour-long Jewish experience designed to expose children to the sights, sounds and smells of Judaism.

The first 30 minutes is for socializing and playing, enjoying read-to-me time and allowing the little ones to explore the synagogue. Feel free to wander where your child leads, in and out of the sanctuary, on to the bima, nothing is off limits.

The second half features singing with Penny White, Jewish Asheville’s pied piper. She’ll teach Shabbat songs, nigguns (wordless melodies), Hebrew  lullabies and Jewish holiday tunes you can continue singing to your kids at home. While the youngest absorb the rhythms and melodies, the older toddlers are encouraged to play along on drums and tambourines.

All the while, the kids are exposed to the in the background sounds and melodies of the Shabbat service coming from the sanctuary. The entire hour-long experience is designed to imprint positive Jewish memories that will last a lifetime. This program is designed for any Jewish family with kids under the age of four. You need not be a member of CBI to participate.

Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle @ Congregation Beth HaTephila
Feb 17 @ 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. While CBI’s building is undergoing renovations, we will be meeting downstairs at Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, 43 North Libery Street in North Asheville.

Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm
Published Tuesday, March 18, 2014 8:00 am

Out of the texts of the Torah, the Rabbis created teachings bringing deeper meanings to the wisdom of the Jewish people known as Midrash. Each week we will explore some of these teachings based on the weekly Torah portion. We will gain not only an understanding of what the Rabbis were teaching, but how and why they were able to offer these teachings. While there are many compilations of Midrash from different periods in Jewish history, we will focus our studies on Midrash Rabbah.

Friday Noon Study Group

Friday Noon Study Group

Friday, February 15, 12-1

Last week we discussed one of the longest chapters in Telushkin’s Jewish Humor, Chapter 7, which dealt with “Poking Fun at God, His Law, and His Spokesmen on Earth.” As with earlier chapters, there were some good jokes shared in this chapter, but there was also a lot of interpretive discussion on Telushkin’s part–much of which may have reflected his position as a rabbi (i.e. one of God’s spokesmen).  We noted that the humor directed toward God was for the most part gentle, but that it revealed a human skepticism that was not evident in our prophets.  In response to Isaiah’s prophesy of a messianic time when “the calf and the lion shall lie down together” (11:6), Woody Allen observed that “the calf won’t get any sleep.”  There seemed to be a paucity of jokes about rabbis–because they were held in high esteem for so many generations?  because Telushkin may fail to see the humor in such jokes?  When it came to humor about the friction between rabbis and their congregants (especially synagogue boards), the jokes came fast and furious.  Our group also spent some time on other synagogue issues raised by Telushkin:  High Holiday Tickets and publishing the names of major donors.

Next week, we will hold our final session on Telushkin’s book (complete with a siyyum, a light festive meal).  Our focus will be on the Jewish Humor‘s final two chapters, 8-9, covering Israeli humor (is that an oxymoron?) and humor that didn’t seem to fit into any other of Telushkin’s categories (pp. 173-191).

Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from 12-1 in the Library at Congregation Beth Israel on Murdock Avenue.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise.    If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at jbjacoby@uncc.edu.

Looking ahead, the study group will not meet on February 22, but will resume on March 1 with a new topic:  Amos Oz’s Dear Zealots.  Stay tuned to this web site for further details.

Torah on Tap
Feb 24 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Torah on Tap

Join us on the last Sunday of the month at Habitat Tavern and Commons 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?
  • Developing a practice of gratitude
  • Gender identity and Juadaism

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.

Combatants For Peace Program
Feb 28 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

CBI is excited and proud to host a delegation of Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers from Combatants for Peace. We will have two events – a public event on Thursday evening February 28 from 630 to 9 and a private donors brunch on Thursday, February 28 at noon.

At noon on February 28 CBI will host a special catered donor’s brunch with the Combatants for Peace delegation! To attend, you may donate on the AFCFP website http://afcfp.org/, drop off a check at CBI, or make a donation at the door!

Combatants for Peace is an organization of Israelis and Palestinians who are former combatants in that struggle.

This is  an important time to support their mission of nonviolent connection and resistance to the forces that perpetuate separation, hatred and violence in the Mideast.

Two speakers from CFP are coming to Asheville February 28.

We are actively raising money to support this program.

In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots movement was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Combatants for Peace is the only organization, worldwide, in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have laid down their weapons, choosing to work together for peace and justice. They have been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, 2017 & 2018.

The Combatants are coming to speak in Asheville on February 28th. They will be telling their personal stories of transformation from violence to nonviolence, and sharing the work that they are doing to end the occupation and bring peace to their homeland. We will have two speakers: one Israeli and one Palestinian, and also be screening a short clip of their award winning, documentary: Disturbing the Peace. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5503512/videoplayer/vi3567498777?ref_=tt_ov_vi
