Healing and Chanting Circle

September 5 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Zoom Teleconference United States

The Hebrew month leading up to the High Holy Days is Elul. Our sages interpret that as an acronym for verse 6:3 in the Song of Songs: “Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li” — I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine. In the case of Elul, the loving couple is the people of Israel, collectively, and God. But what does it mean to be in a loving relationship with the Divine? In this month’s chanting circles, we’ll be exploring that…

Selichot Service and Program

September 12 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
Zoom Teleconference United States

The NE Extension Leads to Selichot 476, the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, may not seem like a holy place — though after a bad winter, it can be a place full of holes! But this year for Selichot, we are joining — virtually — with congregations in Lehighton, Bethlehem, and Allentown for a joint service and program. Our Zoom-based meditative, reflective service will run from 8 to 9 pm and will be co-led by a number of rabbis,…

September 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Because we won’t be meeting in person for the High Holy Days this year, we won’t have an in-person children’s service/program.

Both programs will take place on Zoom at 1:30 pm. This half-hour interactive program will include magic tricks, discussion, a story, and the shofar. Everyone is welcome. The Zoom link for…

Rosh Hashanah 2.0 — Chanting like a Shofar

September 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Zoom Teleconference United States

For the past few years, Temple Hesed has been offering a new twist on the ancient custom of a second day of Rosh Hashanah — RH 2.0, a meditative chanting service. This year, on Sunday, September 20th at 10 am, we will “meet” on Zoom to explore what it means, both spiritually and physically, to “raise your voice like a shofar,” as the reading from Isaiah 58 in-structs us to do each Yom Kippur. Utilizing chanting, meditation, and study, this…

Multifaith Chanting Circle

October 3 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Zoom Teleconference United States

Our Multifaith Chanting Circle theme for October is "Harvesting Joy." How can we find satisfaction in our accomplishments and present circumstances, despite messages from our society that we always need to be doing ( and buying) more and more? And how, in a time of fear and division, can we find joy? Those are the questions we'll explore through chant, study, and mutual support. Everyone is welcome, no matter their faith background, and no prior chanting experience is necessary. All…
