Deepening Your Jewish Experience

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2013.

Do you pray that you might be able to pray? Do you bless your food with gratitude that a stooped worker picked it for you? Do you breathe in the rest of the Sabbath with ecstatic peace? Or, do you just wish you could?

Join Rabbi Creditor to explore how you can deepen your personal Jewish practice. We will explore three key areas: Shabbat, food, and prayer. Come exactly as you are and honestly determine what you would like MORE of in your life. Each person will be on their own journey but will share their questions and challenges.

Bring a thoughtful friend.
