For Locations and Details: A Shabbat with Rabbi Jeff Roth
Jeff will give a talk about his new book, Me, Myself & God at 5:00 P.M.
Many of our human existential struggles stem from the sense of disconnection, alienation and loneliness that comes from a fragmented view of reality. Drawing on the insight and audacity of Jewish mystics, and rooted in a rich understanding of Torah, Rabbi Jeff Roth helps us overcome this sense of separation and reconnect with a more harmonious flow of life. He equips spiritual seekers of all faiths—or none—with powerful techniques rooted in Jewish mystical practices and mindfulness meditation.
There will be a Shabbat Dinner at 6:30 P.M.
Jeff will lead a Contemplative Kabbalat Shabbat Service at 7:45 P.M.
The service will combine the chanting of parts of the Kabbalat Shabbat liturgy with introductions to the meaning of the chants. Following each chant there will be some silent time for contemplating the words, and allowing them to impact one’s consciousness. This prayer practice allows for the cultivation of wholesome mind states fostering an appreciation of the Divine Presence that pervades existence.
