Reb Nachman of Bratslav used to pray: רבונו של עולם Master of the Universe, grant me the ability to be alone; may it be my custom to go outdoors each day among the trees and grass, among all growing things. May I express there everything in my heart, and may all the foliage of the field — all grasses, trees, and plants — awake at my coming, to send the powers of their life into the words of my prayer …
The intention is to walk and simply be together in the delight of Shabbat. We will not have a formal service, but we will stop along the way to sing gently, offer prayers and immerse in some Torah. Lorin will provide a handout with a few prayers and psalms but will not include a full Amidah (feel free to bring your own siddur or benchers).
Please feel free to bring a Siddur, water bottle, sturdy shoes, snack, layers of warm clothes and a mask, if you’d like. We will aim to be back at TBE around 12:15pm to join together for Kiddush and have an opportunity to eat together.
Facilitated by Rabbinic Student Lorin Troderman. Registration required by the preceding Friday by 12pm; meeting location will be sent to registered participants.
