    Arts Lunch: Jewish Papercutting for Shavuot with Max Brumberg-Kraus

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    May 11, 2021

    In this hands-on introduction to Jewish paper cutting, participants will learn how to make two kinds of traditional Jewish paper cuts: a hamsa, a protection symbol, and a “little rose” or roisele, a traditional paper cut flower to decorate the synagogue during the late spring/early summer festival of Shavuot, the commemoration of the reception of the Ten Commandments and Torah at Mount Sinai. For this workshop, participants should bring scissors and colored paper (I recommend origami paper, but a thin colored paper, or even construction paper can work in a pinch).

    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    May 12, 2021

    All are invited to a shared Contemplative Gathering every Wednesday morning to gather together in silence and sit in communal contemplation. This is an opportunity to find grounding in the moment, and to share in that grounding energy with similarly self-directed explorers. The last ten minutes of the session are devoted to sharing aloud prayers that have been submitted during the week.

    If you have anyone in your heart for whom you would like to request a prayer, please use this form before 7 p.m. on the Tuesday before the session to submit your request. Prayer requests will be accepted on a first-requested, first-offered basis until capacity (still being determined) is met for our available time. Please be brief in the wording of your requests. Please contact Scott Campbell for more information.
