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 SynagogueRabbi Goldie Milgram is a specialist in the fields of Jewish experiential and spiritual education. She is best known as the "rebbe-on-the-road," for her travels world-wide as a seeker and teacher of Torah, Jewish spiritual practices. "Reb Goldie" founded (2000) and heads the 501C3 non-profit Reclaiming Judaism, serves as editor-in-chief for Reclaiming Judaism Press, and in 2014 founded a three-year distance-learned training program for Jewish educators titled Jewish Spiritual Education (JSE): Maggid-Educator Training. Her publications are numerous, beginning with Reclaiming Judaism as a Spiritual Practice: Holy Days and Shabbat (Jewish Lights Publishing.)
