Havurah Hangout, December 17th

What does it mean for a modern (or post-modern) person to be “spiritual”?  Or “spiritual but not religious”?  Or “religious but not superstitious”?


Do we need to know “what we really believe” in order to embrace spirituality?

Where does a modern person find a place for their sense of awe, radical amazement, and gratitude upon encountering “that which is so hard to name”?

What role can Judaism, and traditional Jewish practice, play in all this?

Our third Havurah Hangout will be at Havurah House, on Wednesday, December 17 at 7:00 PM, the second night of Hanukkah.

In addition to getting together to light our hanukiot and sharing latkes and sufganiot (jelly donuts!),  Mitch Pearl will lead a discussion on adult spiritual journeys. Mitch, Havurah’s Ritual Chair, has been an adult Jewish learner for many years and a participant in Jewish spiritual retreats at Elat Chayyim, the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, in Falls Village, CT.

No answers will be given.
