The Purpose and Power of the Lament, Sacred Study with Rabbi Goldie Milgram, Reb Goldie

The Aquarian Minyan Invites You
Monday, July 31. 2017 – 7:00-8:20pm
Location: Chochmat HaLev

As humans we express our suffering by lamenting–with tears, with cynicism or humor, with silence, with a shrug, or a sigh. Our Jewish culture embraces the lament with our music, our prayers, our sacred texts, and the wisdom of our sages. In this workshop we will study the Trauma-Healing sequence developed by Dr. Barry Bub as a way to understand the anguished How(l) of Eichah, the Book of Lamentations chanted on Tisha b’Av. Then, we will partner with each other to create a stanza of our own laments and see what emerges.

Cost $20, $10 to members of Aquarian Minyan, Chochmat HaLev, and Kehilla. No one turned away for lack of funds.
Registration Coming.
CoSponsors: Chochmat HaLev & Kehilla Community Synagogue
