  • 2 Thursdays December 15 -22, 10AM - 11AM: The first class, led by Rabbi Miller, will focus on yoga with Jewish teachings. At the darkest time of year, we yearn for light. Join us as we explore themes of Hanukkah through gentle embodied chair yoga, guided reflection and Jewish teachings. The second class, led by Rabbi Howard Avruhm Addison, will discuss dreams and Judaism. During this time of year, the Torah is full of accounts of dreams: Joseph’s interpretations and Pharaoh’s dreams in Genesis; the promises of light, freedom and growth that come with dreaming of Hanukkah. Drawing upon Jewish tradition and contemporary insights, we will discuss how dreams can help us understand our lives. Together, we will explore how illogical or even frightening dream images can lead us to greater well-being. Email questions to Gwrigley@goldenslipper.org.
