UPCOMING IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS:
This year, we have fabulous co-leader for the Friday night service that falls on the second Friday of each month. Daniella Forstater is a gifted musician and prayer leader, will join us monthly beginning after the High Holidays/Yamim Nora’im. More about Daniella here.
The Lasko Family Foundation has generously awarded me a grant for “Chanting and Chocolate in Chester County.” We’ll begin on Sunday, November 18 at 7pm and run monthly at the fabulous new Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center in West Chester. No liturgy, no Hebrew needed. Simply to be with others and chant….and then eat chocolate. Uptown! Knauer is at 226 N High St, West Chester, PA 19380. Street parking is free on Sundays.
Join us for a book discussion with my teacher and mentor, Rabbi Marcia Prager, on Wednesday November 14 at 7:15pm. Her now-classic book, “The Path of Blessing” beautifully guides us through the six words that begin Hebrew blessings — Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheynu Melech Ha-olam, words that we often rush right on through without through or intentionality. Rabbi Prager helps us explore how each of these words can be a path for spiritual growth, connection to community, and to God. 520 William Ebbs Lane WC 19380.
We’ll continue with services and pot-luck every second and fourth Friday at 6:45 at Temenos Farm House.
We will have innovative and meaning-filled holiday celebrations for Hanukah, Tu B’shvat, Purim, Pesach and Shavuot. Daniella and I will be integrating other holidays in to our Friday night services.
If you have not already contributed, I am reaching out reach to ask for your financial support for this year. For those who find a spiritual home with Makom Kadosh, we request $360/family or $180/individual. We are grateful and thank you in advance. If you come occasionally, or only for the High Holidays/Yamim Nora’im and wish to commit less financially, that is appropriate. If you’d like to give more to support our work, thank you for your generosity. No one will ever be turned away because they did not or could not pay. Pay by check (made out to Makom Kadosh, and sent to 520 William Ebbs Lane West Chester, PA 19380) or with PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account, just go to: paypal.me/MakomKadosh.
