Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,
The ALEPH Kallah is the Jewish Renewal Biennial — a week-long gathering which takes place every other year, a magical week of learning, prayer, yoga, meditation, and terrific programs led by amazing teachers. It’s a great way to experience Jewish Renewal: a chance to meet people, have meaningful conversations, experience new modalities of prayer, and engage in learning which feeds your mind and heart and soul alike.
This year’s Kallah will be in Rindge, New Hampshire from July 1-7. The theme is Kol Echad: Connecting With the Divine, Within & Around Us.
I would love for some CBI members to join me, and there’s a congregational discount for any community which is bringing a “minyan” of attendees. Coming to the Kallah is a great gift you can give to yourself — and also a gift you can give to the CBI community, since I guarantee that you’ll return home inspired and enlivened.
The Kallah Website includes a listing of all of the classes, along with information about the kids/teens program, opportunities for artists, and opportunities for practitioners of various healing arts. Classes do fill up, so I encourage you to register as soon as you can. Here’s the program booklet, which features course descriptions, lodging information, information about the various programs happening during the week, and also pricing information.
The Kallah moves around the country every two years; it hasn’t been on the East Coast for a while, and probably won’t be again for a while, so: seize the moment and join us!
For more information you can visit the Kallah webpage, or contact the Kallah office at firstname.lastname@example.org — or reach out to me directly; I’m happy to talk about this with anyone who’s curious.
Blessings to all,
