Experimental, "Mystical" Shabbat Seder at WES this Friday Night at 8 pm

January 30, 2015 - 8:00pm

Join us for The Shabbat Seder, A Mystical Meal! Experience Liturgy Around the Table with family and friends!  This innovative Shabbat seder will be led by new WES member, Rabbi Robert Teixeira, founder and spiritual director of Uri! Uri! Awaken! Awaken!—an emerging chavurah in Brooklyn—and long-time member, Joshua Greenberg, who will lead a dinner-table discussion of Beshalach, the weekly Torah portion. If you like, feel free to bring a (lacto-ovo) vegetarian dish. And feel free to make a contribution to enhance our time together such as a poem, reading, song, etc. NOTE:  There will be NO 6:30 pm service at WES this Friday.

“A mystical approach to Judaism is…less dogmatic and more experimental. It doesn’t have a low ceiling, capping the mind and frustrating its desire to unify in love and awe with a vital, living universe. It is open minded, open souled. It says, ‘Try this. If you feel it as a living reality, we’re getting somewhere.’” Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi z”l
