Processing our Return to the Building: Our Hopes & Fears w/Rabbi Woodward (on-line)

August 23, 2021    
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re told that when we walk into a synagogue, we should say, “Mah Tovu” – how beautiful! But the reality is, returning to “a new normal” isn’t so simple. The return to communal spaces brings a lot of mixed emotions. Join Rabbi Woodward at one of two reopening emotional processing groups. So as to be accessible for all, one group will meet in person, and one group will meet over Zoom. (The content of the meetings will be the same.) In these groups, we’ll process how we have changed over the pandemic, where we are right now, emotionally and communally, and where we are going in the future.

This is an opportunity to get yourself ready for the physical opening of the building on the High Holidays with some spiritual preparation. “I really hope you’ll join us,” Rabbi Woodward notes. “This is something we haven’t had in our society, but people deeply need.”

7:30 pm on Thursday, August 19 in person at BEKI

7:30 pm on Monday August 23 on Zoom
