  • Got Shabbat? (Including Tot Shabbat)

    60 Highland St: Sanctuary, FH, kitchen, library, LR, Rms 109-111
    Saturday, March 25, 2017 - 9:45am to 12:00pm
    Booking Date/Time: 
    Saturday, March 25, 2017 - 9:30am to 1:00pm

    Join us for “Got Shabbat?”, an opportunity for the whole community to come together and have fun, learn together and find new ways to celebrate Shabbat. Beginning together with songs and blessings, adults and kids are then invited to choose from a panoply of activities, until we gather again to read a little Torah and close the service together. Come find out if you’ve “Got Shabbat”! A kiddush lunch will follow.

    At this special Shabbat gathering, we will be reading about the building of the mishkan, the portable sanctuary in the wilderness, and thinking together about how we build, relate to, and protect our sacred spaces. We will have a diverse array of morning workshiops for all ages, including:

    Tot Shabbat (for families with kids aged 0-5) – families with young kids are invited to celebrate Shabbat and create a holy space with our voices, bodies, and more!

    “My Father was a Syrian Refugee”: (with Rabbi Shahar, adults and teens): Refugee. Sanctuary. Immigrant. Asylum Seeker. What’s all this about? How does Jewish tradition help us understand these experiences and how we should respond? This session will include Jewish text, orientation to different aspects of immigration justice work, and more information about initiatives happening in the larger Jewish and Greater Boston communities on the creation of safe spaces for people in need.  An opportunity, after the  Members Meeting, to go a little deeper into the Jewish roots of “welcoming the stranger.”

    Comics and Torah! (with James Kaplan, ages 6 through adult): Come learn about the Jewish origins of comic books, see parallels between the building of the Mishkan and stories in comics, and create your own comic about building something special.

    Building a Sacred Space with Sound (with Shira Moss, ages 6 through adult): In this percussion workshop experience, we will be referring to this week’s parsha, Vayakel/Pekudei, the construction of the Tabernacle, as a process for creating a group percussion piece. The stages of construction as described in the parsha will be explored through sound ,as we build and layer a Sacred Sound Space together. Percussion instruments are provided, but if you have one of your own please bring it!

    Mishkan in Motion (with Esther Kohn, ages 6 through adult): We’ll explore this week’s parsha through a physical warm up, theater games, visualization and creative movement. As the Israelites brought gifts of the heart to build the mishkan, we will use body, mind, and spirit to re-imagine and recreate our own  sacred structure.

    Main Sanctuary – Adults and kids are welcome to stay in the main sanctuary with Rabbi Toba for a morning service that will feature a bit of meditation and Torah study, as we make connections between the building of the Mishkan, protecting the earth, and nurturing our own hearts and minds.

    At this service we will also be honoring the yahrzeit of Gina Fried, and hearing from our teens about their fundraising project to welcome refugee families to the Boston area.
