Moving in Mincha with Evlyn Gould
Saturday, January 31, 4:00pm
Post-Shabbat contributions to TBI Community Education programs welcome

As we leave the last cleansing lights of Chanukah and look forward to the subtle creativity growing everywhere beneath the frozen surfaces of our world, it is time on the Jewish calendar to drop in and awaken to this quiet underground renewal. To welcome Tu b’Shevat, the “new year of the trees,” join in the contemplative mood of the waning hours of Shabbat. Moving together in embodied prayer, song, Torah, and meditative silence, we will tune into our own inner bio-rhythms and urge the body’s private capacity for health and renewal. No prior experience necessary.

TBI  Welcomes Rabbi Deborah Waxman - President of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College & Reconstructionist Communities

Waxman’s “State of the Movement” talk followed by Q&A is an informative and interactive experience in which attendees will hear the current major aspirations of the Reconstructionist movement and the vision for the future, as well as the roles Reconstructionist-affiliated communities play in the viability of the movement. Specific topics will vary based on the questions of attendees. The event is free. For more on Rabbi Waxman visit the RRC page.
