Drawing inspiration from and breathing intention into the Jewish high holidays, this two hour workshop for women is designed to help build inner-strength and resiliency.

We will explore themes of teshuva, forgiveness, and renewal, inviting experiences of trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, stress, and addiction into the room. The session will weave in dance movement therapy, yoga therapy, mindfulness techniques and creativity, and will serve as a safe place to both share and process emotions, as well as develop and strengthen body-based coping skills that support resiliency and healing.

If you’re interested in attending this event, please RSVP below, or contact the front office at 206-524-0075.

Our rabbis taught that one of the reasons for the destruction of the Temple was “sinat hinam,” senseless hatred amongst Jews.  Our rabbis also taught that the Messiah will be born on Tisha B’Av—suggesting that out of this destruction, there is also the potential of redemption, and reconciliation.

Alan Elsner, Special Advisor to the President at J Street, will discuss how J Street is engaging the Jewish community, fighting back on Capitol Hill and preparing for the 2018 midterm elections. You won’t want to miss what’s sure to be a fascinating conversation.

The past few months have raised numerous questions about the future of US leadership in the Middle East. Do we yet have a sense of the administration’s approach to brokering peace between Israelis and Palestinians? What does a realistic and appropriate pro-Israel, pro-peace agenda look like in the era of Netanyahu and Trump? From a letter signed by almost 200 Members of Congress calling on President Trump to endorse the two-state solution to Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt’s flurry of meetings with Israeli and Palestinian officials there’s a lot to dig into.

To RSVP contact J Street.

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Kyle Fradkin.

This event is organized and hosted by CBS member, David Frum.
