As the days shorten and temperatures cool, we journey toward winter with periods of darkness—thus creating the potential for diminished emotional and spiritual pathways.
Hanukkah and the Jewish calendar provide the opportunity to consider our responses to this darkness, including the light we can make and find in our world.
Premiering Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. on December 3.
Join this expressive and supportive gathering in preparation for the Festival of Lights, to share in traditional and contemporary prayers, songs, and readings. The Jewish Chaplaincy program, under the auspices of Jewish Family Services, hosts the Service of Spiritual Renewal. The service will provide a meaningful reflection on grappling with darkness, anticipating closure for the current secular year, combined with hope for the year ahead.
“I invite all to join us to make your own meaning as part of this experience of Jewish spiritual community,” Rabbi Rudnick said. “Personally, I find this service powerfully connecting, especially in this season of increasing darkness. We would love to welcome you and anyone you’d like to bring.”
RSVP to email@example.com and include your name and email; a link for the service will be sent to you. A recording of the service will be available afterward on the JFS website: www.jfskc.org.
