Be a Blessing: Insight from the Jewish Tradition
November 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| $35
What does it mean to receive blessing, offer blessing, be a blessing?
From the perspective of Jewish practice, these three actions are a primary way that we humans participate daily in renewing God’s creation. Through lecture, contemplative practice, sharing, and discussion, we will explore Shefa, the Source of blessing, B’racha, a prayer and ritual practice, and God’s directive and promise to Abraham in the Book of Genesis, “Go away from your land, your birthplace, and from your father’s house… I will bless you and make you great. You shall become a blessing.” Read “The Blessing After the Meal,” and “Getting into the Spirit of Blessing,” two Well blog posts by Sara.
