Event description

Description

Join Kohenet Annie Matan to celebrate Shabbat Teshuvah, the Shabbat of Return, in community. Connect to each other and Jewish wisdom of forgiveness and return.

For those who cannot attend Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur experiences during the week or for those who just want more opportunities to connect with these days of awe, or with Matanot Lev.

We'll stretch out and weave through havdalah (a ritual to transition from Shabbat into the week and in this case from one year to the next). Light snacks will be provided.

Attendees can expect: a radically different High Holy Day experience*.

  • Tune in to a time of At-One-Ment, not affliction.
  • Sit, dance, meditate, chant, hold silence, and pray in a circle.
  • Leave your shoes at the door.
  • Parents can stay and pray even if you don’t have child care, with the help of our “Prayground**”. A corner IN THE ROOM with quiet books and toys. You supervise your own kids and no one needs to miss out.
  • Chant and pray with traditional and original, creative liturgy in English and Hebrew.
  • No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

*Matanot Lev is a post-halakhic community. All are encouraged to experiment with new ways of connecting with old ideas. Always choose to participate in ways that feel good to you.

**Prayground is inspired by City Shul. As far as I know, they coined the term and have incorporated this practice in their Shabbat services.

Note to parents: There is a diaper-changing station, nursing chair, and quiet play room down the hall for those who need a break.

Our community proudly includes all kinds of families: LGBTQ+, interfaith, patrilineal, Jewish, Jew-ish and those of other backgrounds who are curious about Judaism and seeking community. We welcome participants of all abilities.

College Street United Church is a fully accessible space. If you need any accessibility accommodations, please contact Michael Morgenthau at mmorgenthau@hotmail.com
