Elul Retreat to Prepare for the High Holidays

Loving ourselves as others love us / Loving others as we love ourselves

Preparing for High HolidaysDuring the month of Elul, our tradition encourages us to engage in deep introspection, cheshbon hanefesh. The purpose is to prepare ourselves for our work of reflection and atonement during the Days of Awe. This year, Nevei Kodesh is delighted to welcome Hannah Dresner, a gifted rabbinical student and workshop leader, to lead us in a retreat that will focus on the rejuvenation of the spiritual attachment that supports our contentment with ourselves, as well as our ability to care for others. The retreat will include chant, study, and meditation.  On Saturday there will also have a yoga instructor to lead a short stretch period.

Hannah Dresner is an ALEPH rabbinical student from Berkeley known for her deep and spiritual teachings. Hannah is a founding member of Chicago’s post denominational minyan, Lomdim, and of Or Zarua, the Reconstructionist Chavurah of the East Bay. Hannah will be joined by musician Sheldon Sands on Friday, and Tracy Patch, relaxation yoga instructor.
