The Jewish approach to mindfulness and self-care traces back to the roots of creation. The concept of a week comes from the Jewish marking of six days of work and one day of rest. In this unit, we will explore Shabbat and the role of time in Judaism.

Rabbi Lisa Vinikoor leads this 6-week course. In-person Monday evenings at the synagogue in Bath.

Lesson Titles:
Lesson 1 – Let There Be Life: The Beginning
Lesson 2 – Shabbat: Much more than a Day Off
Lesson 3 – R&R: A Day of Rest and Ritual
Lesson 4 – A Break in the Bounty: A Year to Deepen Roots
Lesson 5 – Tending to the Garden: Preserving Planet Earth
Lesson 6 – Recalculating: Finding the Right Way after Taking the Wrong Turn
