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.
