May 6-8, 2016 Weekend Poet-In-Residence Friday evening May 6, at 7:30 pm Stacey will join our 7th grade and Shabbat service to teach and share unique poetry of the Shoah, the Holocaust, in commemoration of Yom HaShoah and the 7th grade curriculum on the Shoah. Not to be missed for the entire congregation.
Saturday afternoon, May 74:30–8:30pmat the home of Jean MuscatelPoet "Retreat" for WRJ -- A Retreat "redux" WRJ members will work with Stacey for an afternoon of poetry, learning, wine, and sharing. Dinner is potluck with the WRJ providing chicken and members bringing sides, desserts, etc. Click Here to sign up to attend.Stacey will lead us in several explorations including - Writing our Faith: We will dive into text and midrash with study, prayer, and song to explore the questions of faith and doubt: What stops us? What gives us courage to move on? What do we carry with us? What do we leave behind? In the end, we will create together the Book of Faith - we will write about our experience, of the answers we find, the questions that remain, and all the wonders we gather along the way.Hallelujah! Praise God!: Sounds strange, doesn't it? And yet, so many of our prayers are devoted to this idea: praise God. Let's take the opportunity to explore this in a little more depth through discussion of the 150th Psalm, which many think of as "the Hallelujah psalm", and then look at other prayers, not just the "set prayers" (keva) that are found in the service, but in prayers and psalms offered by other writers (kavanah), focusing especially on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." After exploring these themes, we will also put pen to paper, and do some writing. Like Leonard Cohen, we will each offer our own "hallelujah."
Sunday morning, May 8, during Religious School Learn with Stacey as she joins the 6th grade and the 7th grade to study, share and write poetry about Doubt, Justice and the Shoah.
