Me, Myself & God:
An Evening of Learning about Jewish Mindfulness
with Rabbi Jeff Roth
Wednesday, December 7th 7:00pm Donations accepted.
TBI is proud to host an evening of teachings from Rabbi Jeff Roth's new book, Me, Myself & God: A Theology of Mindfulness. Rabbi Roth, who is the founder and director of The Awakened Heart Project for Contemporary Judaism, offers a contemporary approach to Jewish meditation. He focuses on the practice of mindfulness, combined with the teachings of Torah, to offer a path to liberate ourselves from alienation, awaken to the truth of the present moment and open to a sense of the Divine Presence.
The Membership Committee is seeking new members for its "Welcomensch" Program, which pairs new members with current members to ensure they feel welcomed and connected with our community. Participation is simple! Invite the new member(s) to services or a TBI event, grab a quick cup of coffee, or just give them a call to see how they’re doing. Let’s work together to make sure everyone feels connected to TBI! To learn more, email Jerrica Becken.
