"Dances of Universal Peace"
Join KHL member, Rita Singer as she once again leads this unique service on Friday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. Using some of the Jewish selections from the "Dances of Universal Peace," we will be singing and using simple circle dances to express prayer and celebration on this Shabbat. Experience the Shema and Kedushah in a new way, and see/feel the Light of HaShem shining bright in each of us. Bring a drum, if you'd like, or just sing along. No prior experience necessary! It was so much fun we want to do it again!
The English words pray or prayer are very poor translations of the Jewish concept of what happens when we מתפלל (mitpallel) which is better rendered as "intercede on behalf of." Join Steven Silvern (your tour guide) on a Magical Mystery Tour that opens up a modern service to the Lurianic understanding of intercession. Thus, our work becomes effective intercession to make this world a better place. The Tour leaves promptly at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 26, so come early to make sure that you don't miss important stops on our way.
