A Spirit of "Yes!"

One of our group members began the Havurah meeting with a chant. The melody is composed by Rabbi Shefa Gold. The chant is from Psalm 51:12:

V'Ruach nachon chadaysh b'kirby Renew within me a Spirit of "Yes!" (Psalm 51:12)

During our discussion following chanting and meditation, we spoke about how the experience of meditating together as a group is different than meditating alone. We wondered if we should begin every Jewish Spirituality Havurah meeting with chanting and meditation to create the feeling of being present.

We are still welcoming new members to our Jewish Spirituality Havurah! We will meet on the third Wednesday of each month. Our next meeting will be Wed., Dec. 20 from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

If you are saying Kaddish or would like to attend the Ohavi Zedek online minyan at 7:00 p.m. you can! Just come to the Havurah meeting at 7:00 p.m., go to the Ohavi Zedek online minyan on your phone (lasts 20-30 min.), then join our Havurah meeting a little late.

In addition to our next meeting on Wed., Dec. 20, there will be a Shabbat dinner hosted by one of our Havurah members. The Shabbat dinner will be on the second night of Hanukkah, Dec. 8.
